Beware The Ides of October

pigeons 3Oh crap, thanks to budget cuts , the starlings have shat all over Rome. The flock of about 1.5 million fly in around October for a little R&R. They lounge around eating olives and then in the evening they let rip, all over streets , rooftops, statues and slow moving tourists. Local authorities normally minimize the poop fest by pruning olive trees and playing loud falcon noises but this year their budgets were cut and now it has been raining poop.

Can You Hear The Lambs Clarice?

OK loons, we have a finger to point for one of the mass bird deaths. Seems the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have admitted to killing hundreds of starlings found in Yankton, South Dakota. OMG, they used an avicide poison called DRC-1339 to cull the 5,000 birds that were shitting on a farmer’s cattle feed. However, they say they had nothing to do with the dead birds in Arkansas and Louisiana.

Starlings Can’t Handle Booze

Phew, am I gonna regret this in the morning!

My, my, my, authorities in Romania say the dozens of dead starling birds found on the weekend had drank themselves to death. After examining their stomach content,  veterinarians concluded the little creatures had got themselves pissed on left over grapes from the wine making process.

Garden Full of Dead Starlings

Thank god cows don't fly!

You know what I hate? Returning home to find 75 dead birds in my backyard, I really hate that! When Julie Knight, a nurse, returned  to her home in  Somerset village of Croxley she discovered a virtual bloodbath of  dead and dying birds strewn across her yard. 75 starlings had literally rained down into her garden “It was like something out of a horror film, like Hitchcock’s The Birds. It was absolutely terrifying,” All the dead birds were found in a small area of her garden measuring about 12ft in diameter. Experts believe they may have tried to escape a predator like a sparrow hawk and accidentally flown into the ground. Hmm, dumbass starlings!
