Even though they are not a native species to Canada, I don’t mind them being in my back yard. I don’t mind their singing and I’m just happy they are not crows.  Also, they have been ridding our yard of insects such as the Carpenter Ant and the Cabbage Moth; both insects I do not care to have in my yard.  Win Win.
