I have lived in this spot for 21 years and suddenly we are overrun with crows, grackles,or whatever those big, black birds are. They are chasing away and killing the birds we want to encourage. How can I get rid of them?

There's really no absolute method of deterring crows. Visual deterrents are the first?and probably best?response. Bright and flashy objects such as pie tins and Mylar party balloons, which cost little, can be very effective at repelling crows. Garden stores often sell reflective Mylar or holographically embossed tapes that also deter crows. Wish I had other solutions to share.
