Is this a starling?


We are in Pennsylvania 1 hour northwest of Philadelphia. We have had our feeder up since spring and have not seen any of these until two days ago, 8-12-11. They are about 8 inches long from head to tail. We are now getting overrun with them and they keep all of our regualar pretty birds away when they are here even our Downey and Redheaded woodpeckers.

I don't feed the birds when there around, as they are mean. I have seen them chase blue birds and woodpeckers out of there homes,they are not nice birds.

Yes it is a starling and they will overwhelm you as long as you feed them.
