Isn’t it a bitter irony that these beautiful birds, starlings, an invasive species here, are called pests and are electrocuted for it by the hundreds of thousands …
… by that other invasive species, European humans, in order to protect their European developments, such as this imported species, grapes…
… while the native species make room for them and don’t get out the electrocution apparatus? Let’s try joy.

Clever and true. Thanks Howard.
They sure are happy with this weather these days!
Sorry … Harold. Sigh! Getting old!
Don’t worry. Howard gets called Harold! It’s not age. It’s just a weird name thing.
Starlings, clever birds/devour crane fly pests/more unwelcome visitors
Starlings, absent birds/by absence/natives bless
It is fun to insert “humans” into your mantra
Thanks for the crane fly info.
I’ll have to google them up.
Inserting “humans” is something I had in mind, too.
