What StarlingScan provides

StarlingScan is a free resource enabling communities to report sightings of invasive starlings and alert biosecuritiy organisations to the damage that they cause. It can be used to help develop detailed information about starling populations, to help with controlling numbers to reduce the damage they cause. Starlings cause significant damage to orchards, vineyards, grain production, and displace native species. They are also a significant pest bird in urban area and cities.
