Starlins

I am posting a picture of "Needy" and "Greedy", 2 baby Starlings.  This was 14 years ago.  These baby birds fell  from a nest high above a door on a loading dock.  They landed on a cement floor.  The birds were tiny and had no feathers.  A worker brought them to me.  I did not think they would survive.


Look how they have grown.  With a lot of care and the right food they were soon fully feathered.  "Greedy" was rambunctious and bossy.  "Needy" was smaller and quiet.

We loved these birds!!!! 

And when they learned to fly, we set them free.

However, Anytime we were outside and "Needy" or "Greedy" saw us they would fly down and visit. 

Thank you, Jen, for your comment.  We have taken in many needy animals here...

Love,
Henny Penny

    Those are the best ever names for starlings!!
    How sweet that they continued to look for you and Poppy when you were nearby. Animals are so smart and sensitive.

  3. Hey Mom!

    I remember Needy and Greedy! You and Poppy have always had some sort of critter hanging around -- both tame and wild. :) You are Henny Penny of the Wild.

    Love, Lynn
