Apple Blossoms & Starlings

The two apple trees in our back yard are starting to bloom.

The European starling is visiting the feeder now, and what a messy eater it is. It just jabs its beak into the seeds, scattering them wildly like a weed-wacker. We've put a suet cake up, which I think it prefers to the small, loose seeds. The blackbirds are liking it anyway. As if you can't tell, my husband and I are totally newbies to the art of bird feeding.
