STARLING population control

12 posts in this topic

Most, if not all of those birds were blackbirds, not starlings. This is what a starling looks like. Correctly identifying your target is part of the game.dbpost-12-1207359912.jpg

Boy Dave, I think everyone of those was a blackbird. I didn't see starling one in there. :harhar1[1]:

:harhar1[1]: Actually, to be more precise and scientific, it should be properly addressed as "Euphagus cyanocphalus."

Some were (Euphagus cyanocephalus) but I'd don't think they were all Brewers.
I agree with you, John. they could have been other species of female "black" birds. The video is poor res. and their could have even been a grackle amongst them. :harhar1[1]: db

Yep Dave, I did see a grackle and maybe a cowbird. I agree with the female brewers too.

Only English sparrows are legal to kill.
Sounds discriminatory to me!Other sparrows should have equal rights!

Here's the English Sparrow(also called House Sparrow). They are introduced and they aren't really a sparrow, but a weaver finch. Some types of weaver finches build tremendous colonies in Africa. They are very gregarious.dbpost-12-1207464682_thumb.jpg
