Thwarted by that move, they all moved over to the suet feeder, displacing the male and female downy woodpeckers who went back to the tube feeder. That came down, too, until I can find a suet feeder that only allows birds to feed from the bottom. Starlings won't feed upside down, but the woodpeckers, wrens and yellow-rumped warblers will.
I'm crossing my fingers that the small perches on the other feeders will keep them from taking over those, but if it does happen, then all the feeders will be switched out to safflower seed. This is becoming an expensive proposition this winter as I am now on my third set of bird feeders. Cheap plastic ones don't hold up even for a couple of weeks.
I do find the starlings' feathers interesting even if their greedy feeding patterns are annoying. From the All About Birds website:
"Starlings turn from spotted and white to glossy and dark each year without shedding their feathers. The new feathers they grow in fall have bold white tips – that’s what gives them their spots. By spring, these tips have worn away, and the rest of the feather is dark and iridescent brown. It’s an unusual changing act that scientists term 'wear molt.' "
