Just when the Red Wattlebirds thought they had the run of the place …

Our street has become overrun with starlings the past few weeks, sending the Wattlebirds into hiding. Even the Currawongs are keeping their head down, overwhelmed by the sheer numbers.

Apparently the myna trap works for starlings too? I've yet to trap a starling, but then I've never seen them in this quantity before. It'll be like a bear in a stream while the salmon are running.
