European Starlings first came to our property 2007 winter. Well, maybe they did before, but I didn’t notice.
All these images below were shot from my room.
Last time I saw them here was on the crabapple tree in 2009. I wonder why they don’t visit here any more?!
European Starling, “first brought to North America by Shakespeare enthusiasts in the nineteenth century,” was loved by Mozart. He had a European Starling as pet and taught the bird to sing♪
This is the third movement of Piano Concerto #17 in G.
Here’s actual European Starling songs and calls.
*This is a revise of my old post Mozart loved European Starling in 2010.
