Starling on green!

starling ~ sturnus vulgaris

 

RSPB red status list

 

Some people do not like starlings and I must admit they are messy and can cause damage to buildings. During the summer I have watched them feed alongside young fledgling blue tits, finches and many other small birds without causing them harm other than the odd squawk telling them to get out of the way. In fact the single family group that has been visiting us has been a fascinating insight into the way they behave and communitcate within the their own family.
