The Common Starling (Sturnus vulgaris), also known as the European Starling or just Star-ling, is a passerine bird in the family Sturnidae. This species of starling is native to most of temperate Europe and western Asia. It is resident in southern and western Europe and south-western Asia, while northeastern populations migrate south and west in winter to these re-gions, and also further south to areas where it does not breed in Iberia and north Africa. It has also been introduced to Australia, Argentina, New Zealand, North America, and South Africa.
The European Starling is insectivorous, and typically consumes insects including caterpilllars, moths, and cicadas, as well as spiders.
