Nuh, air gun won't move it, and using a Gerni makes the seeds swell up.
The only way out is to use an Oxy on it to burn and shrink the seeds, then blow them out.

Don't really need an oxy.. one of those 30 dollar propane torches would do it..

I'd be checking the air filter on that falcon pronto.. I'll bet it doesn't look to healthy either.
