Default Re: Annual nesting birds

ALL starlings and English sparrows DIE when I find them. Both are "nice" birds WHERE THEY COME FROM! They are noxious pests here, that harm the local birds and in the case of English sparrows, inflict all sorts of 'not good stuff'. (Major carriers of disease over here as they are particularly susceptible to our fleas. Sadly, the fleas don't kill them.) Starlings are, to my eye anyway, very pretty birds.

Both of these birds are on this continent due to a single MORON from New York. He was an expatriate from Britain that felt that the US "needed" to have all the birds named in Shakespeare's writings. I kid you not. He attempted to get starlings 'started' TWELVE TIMES! It wasn't until the 12th attempt that they 'took'.

There is nothing that "regular folks" do that angers me more than "moving" animals. Governments "introduce" exotic species too, but that's not what angers me MOST with governments. That particular activity is 'up there' though!
