The starlings fly off and on with beaks full of food. The second field season in Anne Kwak’s project “Starve the birds?” Has started. She is regularly found in the field to do dietary research on young birds. She is assisted by Frank Majoor and Symen Deuzeman. The three of them investigate what starlings, and later in the season, barn swallows, are actually fed and what the effect is on the survival of the young. Wednesday May 10, Henny Radstaak of Vara’s Early Birds attended. Listen to the radio broadcast here. Below: feather development of a young starling.
