Photography of Birds – Set # 57

Set # 57


European Starlings



Large flocks typical of this species can be beneficial to agriculture by controlling invertebrate pests; however, starlings can also be pests themselves when they feed on fruit and sprouting crops Starlings may also be a nuisance through the noise and mess caused by their large urban roosts. Introduced populations in particular have been subjected to a range of controls, including culling, but these have had limited success, except in preventing the colonization of Western Australia.

    • They are not parasitic, but they could carry parasites harmful to other birds or themselves. Thank you, Jane. 🙂
