Yup, Vera - Starlings can raise quite the racket, as can other blackbirds like Grackles, when they all get together. During the fall we sometimes get flocks that nearly blacken the sky, & yes, they do bring Hitchcock's "The Birds" to mind. Their jabbering can block out the sound of autos when a huge flock is roosting in the trees.
Around here Starlings are considered a year-round resident, although they do swarm in the spring & fall, & I imagine some do move on to & ultimately return from warmer climes.
I know that some folks don't like them, but boy are they industrious & omniverous feeders - always out working my lawn & pastures for insects & weed seeds. I don't mind having them around at all, & actually have raised a few "orphans" for release.
And on a brighter more interesting note, being related to the Mynah, Starlings are excellent mimics, & captive-raised birds have actually been taught to talk! In fact, I own a lovely little book called "Arnie The Darling Starling", a true story written by a Texas woman who found a little naked Starling orphan in her yard, & raised him in her home into a conversing wonder. If you ever come across this book, it's a cute heart-warming read.
