Starlings are frequently considered pests because of the damage they cause, especially to agriculture. They are black, light-speckled, robin-size birds with a chunky, meadowlark shape. Starlings eat fruits and seeds of both wild and cultivated varieties, as well as insects, like grubs in lawns or pastures. Starlings also eat livestock rations and food found in garbage during the winter.
At livestock facilities, starlings consume feed and contaminate the feed and water with their droppings. Where high protein supplements are added to feeds such as cattle feeds, starlings may selectively eat the high-protein portion.
Starlings may also transfer disease among livestock facilities. They cause other agricultural damage by eating cultivated fruits such as grapes and cherries. In some areas they pull sprouting wheat and other grains and eat the planted seed. Starling roosts in rural and urban sites cause health, filth, noise, and odor problems. Their droppings damage and deface equipment and vehicles. In addition, starlings compete for nest sites with native hole-nesting birds such as blue-birds, flickers, woodpeckers, and purple martins. They can be found in dryer and exhaust vents as well as porches and balconies.
