They were the driving force in promoting the original international laws, protecting migratory birds. They also made it a habit to pick up any dead cliff swallow they found along the roadside, and to take its measurements—such as wing length. In North America the starling now occurs from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River, but within this range it is unevenly distributed, and in sections where it is permanently resident there are many localities where it is still unknown. I think of them as 'using up' cavities in a way other species do not. If there are eggs, they will eat them out of the nest that is there already and destroy the nest. In a two-page article in Current Biology inthey assembled all the data that their thirty years of calipering swallow wings had yielded.

The main extension, however, was westward. Noxious because its droppings are linked to numerous diseases not only to animals but humans too. It migrates in winter as far as northern Africa and India. Inside this latter group, there is a clade consisting of species which, again, are usually not too brightly colored, and which consists of the "typical" myna- Sturnus assemblage. A few develop respiratory disease and a very few develop disease of other organs.

Any vent covering you use for starlings should be checked periodically to make sure the vent is working properly and is not impeded by a build-up of any material, such as lint from a dryer. In addition, biogeography virtually rules out a close relationship of Philippine creepers and treecreepers, as neither the latter nor their close relatives seem have ever reached the Wallacealet alone the Philippines. The European Starling Mating Habits The male waves and half extends his wings and rotates while singing when a female flies close by. If the Plains are passed, the Rocky Mountains will present another barrier, but if both are passed the species may be expected to extend its range to the Pacific. Flocks are often observed to execute aerial evolutions with the unanimity and precision of a company of well-drilled soldiers.
