Starlings are God's Miracles too....

...sigh...I guess. They look like giant monsters as they shred the suet cake with their strong, pincher-like beaks; they carry off large broken chunks of suet and seed, furtively, to some distant limb. Here, Heckle and Jeckle (yes, i know they were crows) are actually arguing with one another about who gets the free food; what I object to is that starlings are perfectly happy and able to get down on the lawn and root out those delicious (for them) and troublesome (for me) grubs! So I tapped on the window and they left for a while.

One of our home grown potatoes seemed to smile at me as it was readied for cook pot.
