Smaller than blackbirds, with a short tail, pointed head, triangular wings, Starlings look black at a distance but when seen closer they are very glossy with a sheen of purples and greens. Their flight is fast and direct and they walk and run confidently on the ground. Noisy and gregarious, starlings spend a lot of the year in flocks.
These Starlings have been nesting on the henge, and I wouldn't park under the trees at the parking lot, if I were you! Our poor rental car never looked the same after that afternoon! :p
