    Eastern Starling Trappings

    By Deb on 12/03/2014

    I've done everything recommended but cannot get those pesky birds to go into the trap. Looked so easy on youtube and on the website.

    Expert ResponseExpert response:
    Bird trapping can take time since many birds will not immediately approach new items. You can also contact Tomahawk directly at 800-272-8727 for additional trapping tips.

    A True Starling Live Trap

    By Will on 02/26/2016

    You where not much help, the wire you made the trap out of was 1x1 and it didn't work well because, most starling got out threw the wire. Perhaps you where saving money be not making the trap out of 1/2 x1 wire. But now I have detailed plan to make a working Double Door Starling Live Trap.

    Haven't had the chance to see how it works as the Starlings aren't around at this time. I'll be ready though for next year!

    Love these traps!

    By Steve on 06/14/2019

    The quality of these traps exceeded my expectations. Very well made and will last a life time if properly cared for. Have not put them to use yet, but I expect to trap hundreds of nasty starlings when the fledglings appear soon!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
How big is a grackle and how big is a starling?

Your product title states 'Starling' trap, but under description you state 'Grackle' trap. Which is it and how do the birds compare in size?

A

Common grackles are a type of blackbird that measure 11-13.4 inches in length and weigh 2.5-5 oz. Starlings are one of the three most common nuisance birds, and they are slightly smaller, measuring 7.9-9.7 inches in length and weighing 2.1-3.4 oz. Any birds in this size range would fit inside the Tomahawk Double Door Starling Live Trap - Model 503.
