Last Update: 11/30/2008

We had large groups of starlings in our yard and on the trees across the way. They first appeared as winter set in.

Starling in Nest

We have a pair of starlings nesting in a box in the backyard. This is one of the chicks, a couple of days before it flew out and began to feed on its own. This photo was taken in May, 2006.


These birds were at our feeder in February 2007. The photo was taken with my NovaBird Backyard Bird Camera.


These starlings were part of a large flock seen at Turkey Point on November 23rd, 2008.
