What a Letdown

I am always on the alert for very interesting bird sightings in unusual places, like, say, the portico of the local arts center building.  I'd seen birds zipping in and out of an obvious nest at the top of the capital.  Hence, I pulled over this past Saturday to investigate.  It took a few passes before I could get a decent identification.  And I conclude: starlings.  Ugh.  European Starlings.  Nothing special at all.  Just nasty invasives making a mess of a civic structure.  I won't keep following this crowd, but I will stay alert for other interesting ones!
