Starling I in fact call them 'darlings', they come to the garden every November & stay still end of March, they come in their hundreds & eat everything in sight.  I actually miss them when they leave to nest elsewhere! Birds,Common Starling,Starlings,Sturnus vulgaris Click/tap to enlarge Species intro

The common starling or European starling (Sturnus vulgaris), also known simply as the starling in the British Isles, is a medium-sized passerine bird in the starling family, Sturnidae. It is about 20 cm (8 in) long and has glossy black plumage with a metallic sheen, which is speckled with white at some times of year.
