A Pleasant Thought

Here is a pleasant sight.  You may note these are European Starlings (and quite a few of them).  And you may wonder if I am nuts.  This is pleasant because they aren't on my yard!  Thank the Lord.  No, this flock was working a lawn at my local bank branch.  And they are miles from me.  Happily, we have never been bedeviled by large numbers of starlings although a few birds have come by every long now and then.  It's said these pests have been introduced and have flourished and deprive legitimate natives of provender.  So forgive me for enjoying the idea they are elsewhere... let's hope it stays that way!
