I'll Go with that Analysis
I am not a fan of starlings because they are an invasive species that has caused a lot of damage to our native songbirds and agriculture. This is one reason we are adding more bluebird nest boxes on our farm every year.
I spotted a flock of starlings feeding in our yard one rainy day in September and said, "We have been invaded by starlings. Those are enemies to our bluebirds."
Emily asked if she can leave her school work to look at them. One of her new words is eruption, and I think that was the word she trying to work into her sentence.
When she saw the size of the flock, she exclaimed, "OH! That's a corruption!"
For the sake of our bluebirds, I'll go with corruption!
