Seems these little fellows had their nest built in the scoop of some guy's backhoe. Bad place when the guy wants to use his backhoe. Cute little fellows, they're baby Starlings. All mouth and screeching right now but in a couple weeks I'll put them to work getting rid of all the bugs in my yard.

Aren't they cute. :p

Look at all the competition to get FOOD.

I guess the bigger they can gape the more likely they will eat first and maybe get more as mama takes more notice of them and/or their beak takes up a bigger percentage of the food drop ratio area? ;)

Nab,

That is a wonderful picture of them. They are such cute rascals from an early age. Wish I could put mine to work in the yard. Alas, he is imprinted and wouldn't make it in the outdoors. I love Starlings.

Wolfwood, that is a beautiful bird, but, you know, the European Starling, to me, is as beautiful. I love their markings and when the sun hits their feathers, the iridescence is just stunning.

I love starlings, and I have a pet starling. They really are amazing as pets. They talk, they just want to be on your head when they are free flight. Very personable. I loved what wolfwood wrote,"but was blown away by the Superb Starling's colors on a cloudy day" My starling "baby" still has all his stars. I Loved the picture should be picture of the day!!! min

Absolutely Beautiful Pics!

Loved the pics of those sweet babies and the adult starling.
Never see any around here, so the pics were a VERY special treat!
Birds are the closest to Heaven...except if one chooses to fly in an airplane...I DO NOT! :D

Thanks for the uplift!

Little fellows are perching already

Little guys are growing faster than the weeds in my yard. Already jumping onto the perch.

And the Chucker Bros. were by and lunched with my guys yesterday.
