European Starlings often come around in a flock of about one hundred birds. The Starlings feast on worms and insects in the grassy pastures around here. I took these pictures on a rainy January 1, 2013 from my covered front porch. I saw a lot of the Starlings in the grass but also saw a group perched in the crowns of two Oaks just at the side of the pond. The Starlings are smaller medium-sized birds that are a lovely iridescent blue-black with a long pointed yellow bill and black eyes. They are interesting and don’t seem too wary about people being around. The Starlings are around this community quite often but do come and go.
