Happy Mother's Day

A starling nestling is fed as it pokes out of a cavity inside an English walnut tree in the yard of a home near Roseburg, Ore., on Saturday, May 11, 2013.  Starlings were purposefully introduced into the Americas in 1890 when members of the  American Acclimatization Society decided all birds mentioned by William Shakespeare should be in North America.

The adult may actually be the father. Both parents were busy catching bugs and stuffing them into their hungry offspring.
