Be careful with disturbing, killing, or doing anything to birds, especially water fowl. They are protected under federal law- the Migratory Bird Act, even the ones that don't migrate. The enviros, Resource officers, will come after you with fines, jail if you are caught in the act. Passive systems like a strand of monofilament, cds, should be ok. The dutch man system with the monofilament works well for the boom. Spraying them with water may be, at best frowned upon.

Which is exactly what has to change.

The problem with poison is that you never know how far up the food chain it will go. Doesn't matter how selective it appears to be, just look at what happened with DDT.
