Sometimes when I see a European starling, I am reminded of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Mozart once had a pet starling. He purchased it at a Viennese pet shop in May of 1784 and noted in his expense book that the bird sang a true fragment, which resembled a composition of his.
This would not be that unusual because starlings have an extremely flexible vocal capacity. They can imitate a variety of sounds, ranging from other birds to a barking dog.
