I'm glad you mentioned the starlings. On Wednesday evening, just after sunset, I was walking on Pine between 3rd and 4th, when suddenly there was the most incredible racket and commotion. I looked up an couldn't believe how many hundreds, thousands? of starlings were flying around from tree top to tree top, on wires, on buildings. The tops of the yellow leaved maples (are those maples there?) were black with them. I mentioned to a woman standing next to me at the intersection that it was like the movie The Birds, and she remarked that last year the exact same thing happened - this congregation of starlings. It was such an unusual sight that I had to just stand there for awhile.
