The Starling is one of my least favorite birds.  Since a Brit brought them across the pond, they have prospered beyond belief and have become a nuisance.  Traveling in flocks, they can empty feeders quickly.  Even a suet block put out for woodpeckers can be torn to pieces in short order.  But, while hoping for a woodpecker, and trying burst shooting for the first time, I fired away at my first customer.  I had purposely balanced the feeder gate to limit the access of larger birds, since they scatter seed widely.  The Starling struggled to find a spot where he could feed, and never came to the front side of the feeder.  He actually looked more elegant peering out from behind the feeder.
