The backyard starling babies are doing fine and it's cool watching mom teach them to fly and to fetch insects.

Momma starling send these four packing on Thursday afternoon. We lost one of the four that I brought in and fed and put back with his brothers on Friday. He got it from one of the neighborhood felines. Now there are three and right now they are on one branch of small tree in the yard. Mom is bringing them food and is teaching them flying lessons. I saw Dalrimple watching with a real inquisitive look on his face as mom went through the routine.

Daryl, Dalrimple and David are all in good health and growing everyday. Mom isn't far away and is always watching them.
