I think I heard once that they are native to China and actually are an invasive species. But they have beautiful plumage so who cares.

Starling is correct, and they come in by the 100s at times! I hope you get your feeders back! We had a similar thing happen with red winged blackbirds last year during and ice storm that lasted several days.

About suzi46

suzi46

Living in the mountains of Western Maine on a 15 acre 'gentleman's farm', in a hand hewn log home, has been a wonderful experience these past 6 1/2 years. But it was time to downsize and make a major lifestyle change..so that's what we did!! Going from the Mt Washington Valley region of Maine/NH all the way down to the "Horse Capital of the World"..Marion County in Central Florida! New photo ops in a totally new and intriguing area of this very large and varied state..let the fun begin!
