In the Nest
Photo Album 1

This photo album contains photos of wild European Starlings from hatching to fledging. See newly laid starling eggs in the nest, and watch the babies as they grow and change. All photos are courtesy of Ron Haworth, who graciously offered to chronicle the growth of wild starling babies through his photographs. This is the third year that starling parents have nested outside his front door in Bellevue, WA. This is their second clutch of the year. I have added some of Mr. Haworth's and my comments as he is taking the pictures. Mr Haworth says he is not a professional photographer, but we believe the pictures belie that. All pictures were taken with a Canon Powershot S300 Digital camera.
