Starlings

I heard this little Starling singing her heart out a few weeks ago. I stood and listened to her for a little while. Their songs are quite elaborate if you listen closely. They chirp, warble, gurgle, trill and even copy other bird calls. I think I may have heard a Blue Jay call.

If you haven’t already seen this video going around online, check it out. These two girls witnessed a huge flock of Starlings (called a murmuration) swooping overhead as they paddled their canoe.
