Abstract

The first record of introduction of the European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) into the Unitcd States was at Cincinnati, Ohio in 1872. However, the attempt to bring this old world bird into the country at this time was unsuccessful. Unable to adapt themselves to the new surroundings they soon all died, and it was not until 1890 when Eugene Scheifflin is credited with having released eighty of the birds in Central Park, N. Y. City, that a successful introduction was made.
