I am the Small Animal Coordinator and Blogger for Life Long Tails, and very good friends with a PhD student working with avian, particularly corvid, behavior. Somehow, along the way, we ended up with two very hungry, very little starlings, and, well, once they have spit food back at you a few times they are yours. I think it works that way with human babies too, right?

Starlings are considered an invasive species in the United States, and while it is legal to own one, it is not something to decide to do lightly. They are demanding, both on space, care, and attention, and can live upwards of 20 years in captivity.
