Your Florida Backyard NSiS Home Page Your Florida Backyard Starlings
Starlings were introduced from Europe to New York City in 1890. They are now found throughout the U.S.
They are cavity nesters and often displace native birds. If the diameter of the opening to a nest box is 1 3/16" or less, Starlings will not be able to use it.
