Artist's Description

When viewed closely and in sunlight these birds have the most amazing markings, the colours are a glossy shimmer…The Starling was introduced to New Zealand between the 1860’s and 80’s. It was brought in for practical reasons rather than sentimental reasons, as it was judged to be a bird well-suited to a drastically changed New Zealand environment. With the arrival of Europeans, much of the previous native forest was clear-felled to make way for pasture and cropping land, which was then hard hit with plagues of insects. The only way to deal with this problem was thought to be to introduce species that would help eradicate this plague. Although it was initially very helpful in the removal of crop-attacking insects and controlled ticks on cattle and sheep, it has also had some rather adverse effects on native species. Starlings tend to compete with the tui and bellbird for the nectar of flax, rata and other natives, and because they also nest in holes, they compete for nest sites too. Other negative effects occur through damage to grape and fruit crops. Yet again man lends a hand by destroying and eradicating native bird species and indigenous creatures in New Zealand by introducing species to help himself.. Will we ever learn to let nature be… she will take care of herself? Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Southland New Zealand April 2013
