Starlings are medium-sized birds that can reach 9-12 inches in height and weigh between 2.5-6 ounces. The color of the starlings can help you distinguish between male and female. The male is mostly glossy black, except for the iridescent feathers at its back. The female has a darker plumage and yellow-flecked wings.
There are approximately 110 species of starlings worldwide. Starlings were originally an Old World bird, until the introduction of the European starling to North America in second half 19 century. Around 100 starlings were released into Central Park in New York City to control pests. Today, there are around 200 million of them in North America.
North America has been ravaged by the European starling. Starling populations can harm other birds and cause $800 million worth of crop damage each year.
A flock of starlings may display a unique trait: their murmurations. It appears to be a perfectly coordinated dance. However, it is their defense mechanism against predators. They may have chosen one or two birds but are intimidated by the fluidity of the entire flock.
Starlings can eat almost anything. Starlings are especially fond of grapes and will gather in vineyards to eat them. Starlings can also eat smaller fruits such as grapes and olives. They will also eat larger fruits like tomatoes or apples. Starlings consume about half their diet from invertebrates such as insects and snails. Because they are still learning how to hunt, juveniles tend to eat more insects than plants. They eat worms and caterpillars as well as bees and bees.
Starlings, especially during mating season, are territorial and aggressive birds. Starlings will use their numbers to attack other birds. They have also been seen chasing larger predatory birds such as hawks or owls. Starlings have been observed eating grapevine fruit in areas where they were introduced to agriculture. This can cause damage to the vineyard.
North America's European starling is becoming more common. These birds can be aggressive and territorial and often compete for nesting and food sites with native bird species. Starling populations can be harmful to other bird species.
Starlings can imitate the sounds of birds and other environmental noises. About 15-20 different sounds can be made by them. To avoid predators, starlings travel in large flocks. These large flocks can include tens to thousands of birds, and they can be quite loud. The phenomenon of "sort sol", or "black sun", in Danish is when large flocks of starlings block out the sun.
Starlings reproduce quickly. To reach 200 million starlings across the United States, it took only 100 starlings to be released from Central Park. Although it is not common for a pair of starlings to have three broods each year, the average number is 2. Starlings usually breed in springtime. The female will lay between 3-6 eggs in a nest made from twigs. Once the eggs hatch, the male will incubate them and take care of the chicks. The young starlings will leave the nest in two weeks. However, they will remain with their parents for a few more months.
To attract females, single males build nests. Starlings are attracted to mates by nests made of herbs and green materials. When a female approaches, males will sing to build the nest. Starlings are social and will nest in close proximity to other birds.
The average female starling lays between 4 and 6 eggs. Both parents care for the young birds. Within a few weeks, the chicks are able to fly and can be independent within about one month.
Starlings have been known to take over the nests of other bird species through nest usurpation. It is often done to attract a mate but can also occur when the bird feels threatened.
Starlings make their nests from a variety of materials including leaves, grass, and twigs. Starlings often make their nests under trees or under eaves. They can nest in any hole, even hollowed-out stumps, or crevices. You may find them in old woodpecker holes or in crevices within buildings. The nesting spot is chosen by male starlings, who then attempt to attract a female. They are made of straw, grass, sticks, feathers, soft leaves, and sticks on their outside. They can be reused throughout the year. It takes about 4 to 5 days to build a nest. Starlings are one pest bird species that can clean out their nests. This makes them less likely to be a host for other parasites such as bird mites or ticks.
A starling's life expectancy is between 2-12 years depending on its species. The European Starling, the most common in North America, lives between 2 and 3 years. Starlings reach adulthood at the age of 1 year. They then begin reproducing in the spring that follows their hatching. Starlings are more likely to lay eggs at the same time as neighbor starlings, usually between mid-March through mid- June. The eggs hatch after 12 days of incubation.
Starling birds are born in the nest and grow feathers and achieve thermoregulation. The fledgling period takes about 21 days. After that, the baby starlings leave their nest.
Although one starling lived to 21 years in Germany, this is not common. Starlings are often killed by predators within the first year. This is a significant percentage (30-75%).
Why are European Starlings a Problem?
These birds can do a lot of damage. Farmers are particularly affected by starlings every year. Farmers could lose entire fields of crops, which can lead to losses of thousands of dollars. Starlings can travel in large groups and can eat any fruit the farmer has planted. These thieves can take a farmer's entire crop and eat it all. Farms can suffer damage in excess of one million dollars. Starlings are known to nest in large flocks close to fields of berries and other large fruits. These birds can then feast on fields of fruit, resulting in huge financial losses. To get rid of these birds, contact a professional right away.
Starlings are also known to nest in tiny openings and nooks on roofs, barns, or vents that lead into houses. These birds can also be found in rural areas and homes.

Dangerous Health Conditions
Because of the high number of bird droppings, this species can transmit diseases to other birds. This is because starlings are often found in large numbers, which increases the risk.
Viruses can be transmitted from one animal to another and to livestock on a farm. Starlings have a large amount of feces that can transmit the diseases. This can pose a problem for farmers. This virus can infect all workers and animals. This must be prevented by the agricultural community. This area of expertise requires the assistance of a professional bird control expert.
A fungus can also be contracted from these birds in public places. This fungus can be spread by spores from the soil beneath the nest. Some people can even die from the disease.

Contact the experts to remove nuisance birds from your property if you are suffering from any of these conditions. Starlings can also cause salmonella and e-coli through the contamination of live animals. Because the bird is a frequent visitor to areas where animals live, they can end up contaminating their food. Another reason starlings should be removed is because they live in areas near agricultural animals.
