Common Starling

Mesmerizing Murmuration

I’m not a fan of the Common (European) Starling (Sturnus vulgaris). They have long served as one of the many cautionary tales that illustrate the negative impacts of introducing non-native fauna into the U.S. Starlings are also notorious for their sudden appearances in huge numbers that evoke Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 film, The Birds.
