Starlings are small to medium-sized birds that are native to Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Starlings are omnivorous and will feed on a wide variety of food, including insects, fruit, nectar, and seeds.
They are highly social birds and often form large flocks, especially during the winter months. Some species of starlings are known for their spectacular displays of synchronised flying, in which they form large, beautiful swirling patterns in the sky, known as murmurations.
Starlings are popular cage birds and have been kept as pets for centuries, with the European starling - introduced to North America in the late 1800s - now one of the most common and widespread bird species on the continent.
Despite their beauty, Starlings have a reputation for being pests in some parts of the world due to their large numbers and their habit of roosting in large flocks, which can cause damage to buildings and other structures.
Starlings are known for their ability to quickly adapt to new environments and exploit new food sources.
Some species of starlings, such as the European starling and the Asian glossy starling, are popular subjects for scientific studies on social behaviour, communication, and learning.
