I think I’ve mentioned before how much I like starlings. They aren’t the most popular garden birds – their strong personalities, noisy nature and tendency to swoop in in large numbers, eating all the food and muscling out the smaller, more popular birds makes them disliked by many. But I love them – possibly for those very reasons.
These two are squabbling over the fat cake that has been left out as winter food. There’s plenty there for them to share but they’d rather have a scrap about who has supremacy than share in silence!
