The European Starling made its debut in Tennessee in 1921, originating from the descendants of 100 birds released in New York's Central Park during the 1890s. This robust blackbird boasts glossy feathers that can exhibit a greenish tint when exposed to sunlight. During winter, these feathers sport a white tip, resulting in a spotted look. Starlings feature elongated, pointed bills and are more inclined to walk than hop. Their diet encompasses a wide range of invertebrates, fruits, and seeds.
Problems and Damage Caused by Starling
Starlings can cause significant issues, including extensive defecation and agricultural damage. They also have a tendency to infiltrate buildings and homes for nesting purposes. A prevalent issue with Starlings is when they establish nests in exhaust vents of homes. Often, they build nests within the flexible ducts leading to bathrooms or dryers. Furthermore, they can introduce bird mites into your home, leading to additional concerns, necessitating professional bird removal services.
