European Starlings have been here off and on all year. I am fortunate in that their numbers in my yards vary from just a few dozen to about two hundred. They never seem bothersome at all. They graze in the grass, and usually perch on in the Oaks. Once in a while, I will see the European Starlings perch on the electric lines. These birds eat just about any grains, and fruits. They also like grubs and earthworms. I took these pictures of the beautiful iridescent black-blue and brown birds in my yard. The Starlings were out with all the American Robins in my pasture the other day. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
