Foraging and Nesting Habits of European Starlings: Implications for Managing Starling Impact on Native Species

To investigate important aspects of the ecology of European Starlings in California s oak woodlands, which are an important foraging and breeding habitat for many native birds. Starlings, an introduced species, have recently colonized these woodlands and have possibly begun to displace native species.
