IceAge :hi:

Good evening!

From rewind:
19:45 Three starlings come into the box and start fighting for some minutes. Fight for the box or mate :puzzled:

:hi: and good morning!

Sorry, had some problems to get LK

In the morning starling fight again at 6:30. Now I saw 4 starlings, one of them did not enter the box, he is hanging at the window outside (in Video 4:22). So, I think they are fighting for the box

Thank you, Shanta. The starlings fight very hard.

Yes they fight for the box. Last year didn't end happily. The couples always removed each other's eggs and there were no offspring in this box.

IceAge :nod:
Last year it was very crazy. I don't watch so often, because I have problems to understand the behavior. The starlings are pretty rough with their buddy themselves.


9:21 Again a fight, not sure what happens a minute before ... maybe it was the mate who leaves very quick. Starlings can be heard from outside and the big fight starts
