I’ve been trying, with a remarkable lack of success, to discourage the starlings from taking over the Back Yard Buffet. So now I’m beginning to think about changing my attitude toward these
pesky colorful birds. Until someone can come up with a good idea for encouraging these invaders to change their behavior and move on to a new habitat, I’m going to change my attitude, and my new attitude toward the starling invasion is, “If you can’t beat ’em, JOIN ‘EM.” After all, they do look pretty against the snow and they may even brighten up a drab winter background when the snow has melted and everything is sort of grey and brown. They are persistent critters too, and persistence can be a positive trait. Right? Especially if you call it perseverance. It’s worth a try at least!
How am I doing friends? Am I convincing anyone that an invasion of starlings is actually something to enjoy? Not sure I am convincing myself, but at least I’m trying. 😏 I’m definitely not ready to celebrate starlings yet, but maybe if I persevere with my new attitude, I’ll eventually reach that point.
Here are a few more starlings for you to enjoy:
