Mozart had a pet starling whom he thought of as his musical companion. When his bird died, he had a funeral for him and invited his friends. This video should give you an appreciation for how talented these birds are as mimics [3:15]

    So give the bird a kiss already! I never knew starlings talked. That’s probably because I’ve never seen a live starling.

    you are probably the only person on the entire planet who has never seen a live starling.

    when watching some of those videos, I’m not surprised at how bright the birds are, but at how much the humans are not…

    I just found a starling in my christmas tree. It has been in my house for three weeks, decorated and everything. Just seen the bird flopping around today.
