Starling Shopping for a Suitable Nursery.....

Every Spring I check on Starlings that raise their family by the river in my town.

They are currently "home shopping"...... looking in abandoned barns like this one, or going for a natural abode in tree cavities. I'll go back in a few weeks to take pics of mom delivering worms stuffed in her beak.
