We (in the Americas) shoot these birds because they do considerable damage to our native species. I recognize that Starling numbers may be on the decline in Europe, and that it may bother European bird lovers that the starling is treated as a pest in North America. To those folks, I say, "You are welcome to come over here and collect as many as you would like". I'll even show you how to live capture them. :) We have far more than we need (which is zero). Ted.

Equipment Details:

The Camera Mount I used to record through the scope can be found here:

The slow-motion camera I use to film the shots through the scope is the Casio EX-FC150. That camera is no longer made, but you can buy its successor (which is actually a better camera than the one I use) here:

The Exact same Hawke Scope that I use in this video (Sidewinder TAC 30 6.5-20x) can be found here:
