Starlings are known to lay there eggs in the nest of the American kestrel falcons and boot out the falcon eggs leaving the falcon to raise starlings. I hate starlings too but I love birds so I can't kill them lol..
Wy wife is a vet. tech..yea we wind up with animals. 3 German Shepards and two cats have found there way home with her. I feed my crows and Ravens as well, they chase the Hawks off so they don't eat my chickens.
