11. feral cats
As MrBill pointed out above, I doubt feral cats only kill songbirds. I would suspect that feral cat populations also help kill mice & rats. I believe I read in the past that the killing off of a lot of the feral cat population in Europe centuries ago helped contribute the the plague, since there weren't as many cats to kill off the mice/rats which carried the plague-infested fleas.

Herbert Hoover = GW Bush

Neither man cared about the Depression their economic policies created.
