As I said in my introduction post, I'm not an expert in gardening or wildlife, but I love animals <3
I really don't know much about birds, and I have to google often to find info on them.
But I've always felt love for them, so just recently, I decided to set up a bird feeding station in my small garden,
in hope to attract few birds. And that I did . I saw a couple of these small(ish) black (looked black) birds landing
on my feeder, and I was delighted . Little did I know what's gonna hit me, because the next thing I know, there is a
bunch of them with their screaming fledglings on my garden fence . And the mayhem started
After I got over initial shock, I fell in love with my Starlings <3. Such a beautiful, energetic, intelligent, social, entertaining birds.
There is around 30-40 of them coming and going every day, impossible to count them, they move too quick
I saw just 2 nights ago, quite late, around 9.30pm , couple of them collecting what looked as a nesting material
Would they still be nesting this late? If its late? Should I be preparing myself for another noise attack?

Would youngsters not change their feathers too?
There was a bit of a stress this morning in the garden when the neighbour's cat sneaked up over the fence and jumped right next to the starlings, gave them such a fright , and me too. Luckily nothing happened, its difficult for a cat to jump over the fence and avoid the thorny rose that is there, and the cat didn't look like it was out to kill, but still, dear God! They've been so jumpy and quiet ever since, poor things
