European Starlings

Day 64 / 365

“My family immigrated from Europe”.

Interesting Fact: All of the 200 million European Starlings found in North America today are descendants of approximately 100 birds released in New York City’s Central Park in the early 1890s by an industrialist who wanted to establish, in the U.S., all birds mentioned in the works of Shakespeare.
