STAR (ling) WARS

We put out the last suet cake for the birds during the cold spell last week. Some of our favorite birds, the woodpeckers, chickadees and finches love the suet and seed concoction. Unfortunately, so do the "nuisance" birds: the starlings. They are virtual pigs when it comes to suet. I got a few shots of these two squabbling over the feeder.

I added the captions and background with Plasq's Comic Life software for Macs. I played around with a free demo of this program about a year ago and then forgot about it. In the meantime the original publisher was acquired by Plasq, so today I was able to download a demo of the new improved software. I may have to play some more.

that's fun! Starlings can be a nuisance but they've certainly got character! You could do a whole comic book on them!
