Starlings are not native to the Americas and are considered to be invasive competing with native birds for food and nesting sites.  They were introduced to New York in 1890-91 as part of an effort to have all birds mentioned in Shakespeare's Plays in the US.  By the 1940's they had spread to all US states and into Canada and Mexico.  It is thought there are now over one million birds in the US alone.  They tend to feed with livestock and have been known to spread diseases between animals.   The English Sparrow has a similar history.
