I've never had to shoot birds off an antenna, but if I had to I would invite 
my neighbor over and have him do the same thing he does when the woodpeckers 
go after his log cabin.  The first shot goes into the air to scare the bird; 
when the bird flies off in fright the next shot goes for him.

I imagine it takes a little practice but he is pretty good at it.  Before 
too long a new woodpecker will be back so perhaps it isn't the best 
solution, but here in southwestern Virginia its the kind of thing people do 
for fun anyway.  I've not yet assimilated into this culture yet.
