STARLINGS

Starlings from Burgenland

From 2009 in every autumn I visit Burgenland region of Austria to make photos about the Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) migration. They come in big crowds, in hordes in this region. They like this area because here is Austria’s greatest wine-growing region. Also here in eastern Burgenland it is Austria’s biggest wind-energy park – exactly near vineyards where come the Starlings in big colonies. In addition, because the region is a biggest power generation area, here is a loads of different high-voltage wires, which like and prefer the Starlings for resting …

My pictures present a good example in which it is showing the co-existence, the unavoidable harmony between man and nature …
