Ke-Mo Sah-Bee, You have feathers !

There are quite a lot of Juvenile Starlings eating the scraps I put out for the birds in my Stanford in the Vale garden and they wear the Lone Ranger eye mask and gradually changing feathering that will eventually result in that most attractive star spangled plumage we associate these garrulous and somewhat greedy birds with.
Greenfinch and House Sparrow are doing well so far this year if my Stanford garden is anything to go by. The Blackbirds are thriving but the Red Kites must be struggling to find enough sustenance to see them through, that is if the ever soaring sight of them apparently looking but rarely finding food is any sort of reliable yardstick.
