    You bet,vineyards (we have a small one) and orchards too.
    The 'mob' photo was taken on a stripped Rye Corn field and there was a mob of a 1000 or more of the cockys, lb corella`s and sb corellas on it as I came past last night an hr before dark.Keeping them off before harvest can be a job.
    Local orchardists have shooters with permits to destroy of course.
