Starling Scout

In the past few weeks, a pair of starlings discovered our back porch bird buffet. Like our Northern Flicker, they prefer the suet hangers to the seed feeders. I'm surprised that the resident house sparrows seem unconcerned with the much-larger birds coming by for a bite. Starlings generally travel in murmurations (flocks) of hundreds so I'm hoping these two aren't the advance scouting party. Starlings are so pretty in the sunlight, with purple and green flecks of peacock color on black.
