Black Birds vs Cut Worms

So what are the birds looking for on the fairways?  Cut worms.  Cut worms come to our area as moths blown up on the prevailing winds from the deep south.  The moths lay eggs and the small green caterpillars hatch and begin feeding on the leaves of the grass.  Natural control does not get any better than this!
