I watch these birds every day driving home from work around 4:30 in front of Blaine Kern's off Tchoupitoulas. They are magnificent. I roll down my windows and listen to them. Watching them fly to the ground, en masse, is a sight to behold. And all lined up on the phone line, I love to see how they all move down a step when a bird lands.
Give anything to know what kind of birds these are.
All I know is that their babies are going to come out with three heads.
That would be European Starlings: All of the 200 million European Starlings found in North America today are descendants of approximately 100 birds released in New York City's Central Park in the early 1890's by an industrialist who wanted to establish, in the U.S., all birds mentioned in the works of Shakespeare. They compete aggressively for nesting sites and may evict the occupants of desired holes, including woodpeckers that excavated them. An individual can mimic up to 20 species songs.
Hopefully they will be rendered sterile. They are a terrible invasive species.
