Starling teaches lessons of group etiquette, social standing an family relations and how you appear to the world in those relationships. He will show the nuances of the art of communication and vocalization which needs to be clear and expressive. It's time to speak your voice. Starling can show how to be a fierce competitor to achieve goals along with using all the resources available to do such. It is time to accomplish tasks early and not wait until the last minute.

A Murmuration of Starlings. From a distance they sound like a waterfall, all those beating wings as they settle for the night after their ariel acrobactics. Just magical. Go see and HEAR.

Starling - We had a pair of Starlings visiting our feeders. I was told they could be "bully" birds at feeders but we haven't had a problem with them driving away smaller birds so far. They are fun to watch.
