Starlings and the Cherry Tree

The starlings have discovered that the fruit on the cherry tree just down the track is now ripe. They arrive, a mixture of adults and young.

They soon get stuck in in some cases just leaving just stalks and stones.

Luckily for the starlings, the lady whose garden the tree is in doesn't like cherries and so the birds are allowed to eat them all.

I have also noticed a couple of blackbirds also taking advantage of this free supply of fruit.
