Abstract : Damage to corn by blackbirds (Icteridae) has been an economic problem throughout historical times in North America. Ohio, with the highest nesting season population density of red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus) in North America and large acreages of corn, has been a key State in this conflict. The goal of the research and management programs is to develop means of effectively managing blackbird problems in economical and environmentally safe ways that are acceptable to the public.
