Re: Starling killers

Hello Bipman,
I've had starlings on my feeders regularly for few years now, and in different places, and I've never seen or heard anything like that. Usually they are the ones that are attacked. Very very strange.

Re: STARLINGS

It's reassuring to hear others have had good years which leaves me all the more puzzled as to why this year was a damp squib for Sturklets :shrug: Could be few reasons Jack, maybe the clutches were lost due to a new and successful predator in the area? I mean most of the time if one parent is kille...

Re: STARLINGS

I have to say my Sturklet experience this year was a short lived affair with less attendees than normal. I find that a little concerning. That's a shame Jack, and it is concerning :( . I must say I had more Sturklets this year than the last, but last year was the first in this property so the feede...

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I am not sure how many of them fledged, I saw 2, but heard maybe few more in the shrub :shrug: . They are hiding and difficult to see, but I will definitely keep an eye on them :nod: .

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I saw a dead woodie by the side of a busy road, and that magpie the other day, and few other birds killed on the roads! Why are birds not moving away from the roads and are getting run over?! They at least can fly for God's sake! Its really upsetting to see them killed, seems so senseless :(
