Shortly after this footage was taken, the MacGuffin family was pecked to death in their car by the same swarm of starlings.

When the birds swarmed around that tree, i honestly thought that the video was a joke, because it looked like when the landed on the tree that they were taking the shape of a giant bat. Also, a car was approaching to it sounded like it was coming alive.

It's not rash , just a bit radical. ;)
U.S. has something called (in a nerd slang ;) ) a "Dirty Dozen"- list of 12 most invasive non native species that influence ecosystems..
Starlings make conservation work harder as they are very aggressive in taking nest sites, but they're not a priority.. They are not protected though -so feel free to ruin some nests of theirs, build bird houses in your back yard and make sure they get inhabited by blue birds or purple martins.
And if you end up working for WWF I might be your boss. :P (not really, I'm in Europe ;) )

I'm not a big bird fan but I'm still happy that Lobo will never be in position to influence a biotope balance.. ;)
Nice thumbnail Admin- it's my favorite part of the movie: Tippi climbing on the attic drawn by mysterious sounds. Sure they have been attacked by the birds all night, but that doesn't mean THEY are making that sound.. :P

this reminds me of how much i hate European starlings... i think that in America they should all be shot, and although peta would complain it would benefit the health of native bird populations immensely
