European in America
A European Starling enjoying a summer afternoon on our island.
Starlings are great songsters. Their bill changes colors with the seasons – yellow in spring and gray in fall.
Starlings are nor naive birds. They are naturalized Americans 🙂
They were introduced to the NYC’s Central Park from Europe in 1890.
Here is a quiz question for you: What generation of Ameican is the fellow on the picture if his ancestors came to the USA in 1890?
