B-100 Starling

$85.00

The Tough New Yorker – All of the 200 million European Starlings found in North America today are descendants of approximately 100 birds released in New York City’s Central Park in the early 1890s by an industrialist who wanted to establish, in the U.S., all birds mentioned in the works of Shakespeare. They compete aggressively for nesting sites and may evict the occupants of desired holes, including the woodpeckers that excavated them. An individual bird can mimic up to 20 species, including Eastern Wood Pewee, Killdeer, and Meadowlark songs. A group of starlings has many collective nouns, including a “constellation”, “filth”, “murmuration”, “scourge”, and “vulgarity” of starlings.
