"The king forbade my tongue to speak of Mortimer. But I will find him when he is asleep, and in his ear I’ll holler ‘Mortimer!’ Nay I’ll have a starling shall be taught to speak nothing but Mortimer, and give it to him to keep his anger still in motion.  (Henry IV, Part I, William Shakespeare)

A bardolotor in New York decided to import and release into Central park every bird mentioned in Shalespeare. This quote, representing Shakespeare's single mention of a starling, is thus the reason we have starlings in North America.
