Speaking of oat adversaries:
In 1963, bird control in research plots was a special topic of the Oat Newsletter.
You can read the articles here: http://wheat.pw.usda.gov/oatnews_pdfs/Vol_14_1963.pdf
On the modern research farm (especially in the middle of Ottawa) most of these control measures are not an option. Instead, we hire a bunch of border collies that are trained to chase the birds!
