Every day I see them. Two, maybe three, maybe five starlings. Perched on a wire where I turn onto the freeway, after dropping kids off at school, just another part of my daily commute.

I wonder what the starlings find attractive about that place. Maybe they like the noise of the freeway; they are noisy, mimicking birds themselves. I wonder if they wonder what all the traffic is for.

Wait. The starlings have dropped their kids off at school? Huh?

Whatever, Grammar Police. I was tired.

I have a few of them that frequent my backyard -- did you know they love crabapples? Well, they really love my suet, but I restrict them from it, so I guess crabapples are the next best thing for them.
