Day started off as normal.
Magpies spot the mealworms we put out. Starling waits for them to leave.
Hello, he's invited friends
They finish the mealworms off in short order so my OH puts out a lot more. The starlings are straight back, with an extra one.
and they just keep on coming!
There were several waves of them, coming and going, so there must have been about 3 times as many as you see in the photo altogether. It took less than 2 minutes for them to scoff all the mealworms. The instant the food was gone, so were the starlings. Went out to see if they were lurking in the trees, but no. All gone somewhere else.
