Re: STARLINGS

Got a new batch of fledglings, and food still being taken away. Could be a good season for starlings. Same here, new fledglings being fed by parents, and food being taken away! How many broods they are going to have this year? :eek: :D That's it for this year and they don't always have two broods. ...
