Poor Big Red seemed very agitated today, probably due to the constant annoyance from the starlings. At one point she even stuck her beak in the starling nest pipe (see screenshots below)!

Videos and Screenshots From Today:

Sorry, I was unable to provide much video coverage for most of today. The mods are checking with the Lab about providing a few videos in the 8-9 AM timeframe, including if BR was semi-mantling over the nestlings (or just stretching) and BR stealing nestling material from the starling nest pipe. All videos below are by elly012912 except for #9, which is by carrionmywaywardson. At 6:35 PM, BR screamed loudly at something overhead. We were not able to determine what it was.
