New Poem: starling flock

European Starlings change their appearance in winter.  Gone is their colorful iridescence, replaced by white speckles on otherwise black plumage.  Even their beaks change color from gray to yellow.  I have seen flocks of Starlings large enough to darken the sky.

Starling flock is a mainstream, 5-7-5 haiku inspired by these interesting birds.  Many birders chase them away, but they will always be welcome at my feeder.
