Metaldehyde (as in snail bait) used to be sprayed on grapes to deter
starlings and other spp. until export regulations re residues caused it
to be withdrawn from this use. Perhaps it would be acceptible in your
case. I could be wrong but I think it deterred by taste, before killing
the birds, but this would need checking.
