Subject: [MDBirding] [FR] Downspout Starlings
I rescued another Starling trapped in a downspout [gutter end of the
line] today. Honestly, for a bird that has been remarkably successful
in colonizing N America, you would think that NOT entering a dark,
vertical cavity with the idea of nesting would have been imprinted
onto the genome long ago...sighhhhhhhhhhhhh

On the bright side, the downspout did need cleaning...
