Adventures to have and places to see

European starlings

European starlings
European starlings are also known as Common starlings. They change colours quite a bit through their development and breeding cycle. They tend to ‘take over’ bird feeders, but are still a welcome sight as spring approches.


European starling

4 February 2021

At the wee hours of the morning, we were lucky enough to see a beautiful sunrise with frost clinging to the trees. It is great to see that February has arrived and with it come a lot more sunshine! Also with it came some European starlings. That is a sign we are nearing the end of winter. It was nice to hear their variety of songs while they warmed up in the trees.
