General Starling Problems In Ohio
Starling problems come in the form of flocking in large numbers. The starling is one of the most disliked pest nuisance birds in the U.S. This non-native, invasive species has spread across rural and urban North America when they set loose in Central Park in New York City in the early 1890s. These starlings were deliberately released by a group that wanted the United States to have all the birds that Shakespeare used in his works.
Starlings ordinarily feed on the ground and eat worms, insects, small animals, seeds, fruit, dead animals, chicks from nests, and they love garbage left on your property.
Flocks of starlings can cause numerous problems when they overtake manufacturing facilities, airfields, fields, farms, parks, airports, golf courses, and suburban neighborhoods. These problems include:
- Large amounts of starling feces cause damage due to the uric acid in the dropping.
- Vents, gutters, and drainage pipes get clogged with starling nesting materials.
- Starling feces contain bacteria, histoplasmosis fungus, and parasites which all can cause health problems.
- Starlings are an agricultural pestilence that eat and damage crops.
- Starlings are such a threat to airplanes that they are sometimes called “flying bullets.”
- Starlings can cause costly problems for cattle and swine producers as flocks eat high-protein supplements that are added to livestock feed and spread viruses between livestock facilities.
Watching starlings fly together in the thousands, all diving and turning rapidly and in unison, is absolutely wonderful to witness. Starlings can gather in numbers as large as 100,000. Thes amazing acrobatics is called “starling murmurations.”
Starlings are by nature aggressive and especially so when looking for the best food sources and nesting sites. They will not hesitate to injure or kill other nonaggressive birds that we generally want in yards, especially bird-watching. Starling aggression has had drastic effects on populations of timid birds like the eastern bluebirds and purple martins.
Starlings are fecund, and a single mated pair will produce 2-3 families each year, with each brood producing five to eight baby birds. This rapid population increase can lead to starlings overtaking native bird species and causing intense competition for insufficient food and water.
