As its name implies, the European Starling is not indigenous to North America. They have only been here for a little over a hundred years.
The European Starling was first introduced into the United States when a man released a hundred of them in New York City's Central Park in 1890.
Since then the European Starling has multiplied so successfully, they are now one of the most abundant birds in North America.
