Oh 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.

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!
