This is by far the meanest bird in your back yard, but they are beautiful in their own right. In 1890, Eugene Schieffelin released 60 starlings in New York City, a non native species he imported from Europe. Schieffelin wanted to introduce all the birds mentioned in the plays of William Shakespeare to North America. From the original released flock there are more than 200 million in the USA today. European starlings are now considered an invasive species and reek havoc on native birds & have a negative impact on the economy. They can be seen at times in huge numbers & are a sight to see as they flow across the sky.
