Brash, aggressive and ruthless opportunists
............ give them a break their in decline.
Got an opinion?

Cheryl, I'd love to give them a break if they gave me a break, too. LOL! They are in force over here! Flocks of over 100 descend on farmland and backyard feeders, causing chaos. I only have around 6 of them that terrorize my birds every day, so I'm grateful.

They do have photographic beauty. I just wish their personalities were gentler.

Know where your coming from Mary, and they are noisy messy birds. They are down in numbers here though and I would miss there chatter.

I wish we could send you a few thousand Starling and House Sparrows. It is just amazing to me that they are in decline in your country. Here they are a menace to so many of our endemics. Life has so many twists and turns.

Hi Lisa
Yes life is full of twists and turns. The RSPB would be more than glad for you to send thousands over, so would I. I would not like to see any species disappear completely, everything has a purpose.
Thanks for visiting.
