They are now at home almost everywhere. The starling is typical of many other birds, and this book with simple text is a wealth of s: 1. It’s March and Nicky Starling is turning eight, but it’s a sad day.

Nicky’s grandmother Didie has just died. Almost worse—his father’s beloved football team has lost the first match of the will miss Didie but he still has Rose, Didie’s nurse. He wishes he could love footy, but what he really loves are the tales of King Arthur and stories from.

Noise: Starlings have loud, raspy screeches and squawks in their vocal repertoire, with no sense of musical harmony that might otherwise make their sounds more adults and juveniles can be insistent with their vocalizations, keeping up the cacophony for long periods of time.
