Springtime is almost here and with it will come the Swarming Starlings. For about a few years now I have been attracting birds to my backyard.
However after last year’s dilemma, I’m trying to decide whether to play hostess to the starlings again, for not only do they swarm….they screech, squabble and when all the food is finished they will stalk you from a nearby tree, waiting for more to be replenish.
This young babe takes on an adult Grackle. They seem to be born fighters ready to fight any of the other birds, and also their own.
At this young age they try to eat anything, including my Zinnias, while waiting to get food from a parent.
