I have an Owl too. It's solar powered and the head rotates back and forth. You have to move it around so the birds and rodents don't figure it out. The neighborhood kids think it's a surveillance camera. I didn't tell them any different. keeps em honest.

We have trouble with Crackles nesting in our Pines in the spring,,, then when it comes time to clean the nest they use our asphalt driveway as a target,,, some times there is sooooo much bird crap on the driveway you have trouble finding a place to walk !!!
Tried the Fake Owl,,, did not work,,, may have not gotten it out early enough,,, so went the pellet riffle,,, they did not like it,,, but they keep coming back !!!
May go with a 4/10 next spring !!!

Just go 20 gauge. .410 ammo is very expensive.

depending on the state you in some protect them or have a season. here in Michigan there is a season, BUT you can shot them if they are damaging property out of season. So check it out. If you can shoot them if you can shoot one, put a string on his leg tie that to a stick flying close by, crows are smart and will stay clear for a while.
We used to do this at our corn cribs back in the day. course that was food!! it would keep them away for a week or to. then all you got to do is shoot the gun off and they get the idea real fast, as long as their friend is flying at half mast.

Something back in Arkansas. Monday is a no killing day on crows because of it being the Mexico national bird. Could have been told a lie but was told that was agreement between Ducks Unlimited and Mexico about migration.

Not sure about the smell in the campground. Do know if you can cripple the first one the others will attack it. If you kill the first one the hunt is over.

I think that you are talking about (Grackles)? They are large black birds that travel in large flocks! Youroo!!
