Starling Chaos

We’ve been having a very unusual cold snap this week. Below zero and windy. I honestly don’t know how the little birds survive. I put out some fresh peanuts and sunflower seeds in case the birds needed a bit extra fuel to help keep warm. We had a few horned larks, sparrows, and of course pigeons. I was very surprised to see this rowdy bunch of starlings swarm the yard. It was a bit chaotic. They really are characters. They swarmed and devoured everything left on a tree in the yard then proceeded to fight over everything else. Starlings really have the most beautiful feathers. Look at those colors! What beautiful little trouble makers. They were so entertaining. I tried to pick out the best pictures to post. I found something funny or interesting in every picture. Maybe you can pick a favorite.
