3) Although great variation is present within this family, the sturnids are characterized by their gregarious tendencies, unique flight calls and alarm calls, their ability to mimic sounds, and locomotory behavior adapted for either terrestrial or arboreal feeding.
The number of sound impulses in a burst varies with the behavior, but a typical locomotory or feeding movement produces at least six impulses, and often can produce as many as 50-200 impulses.
One of the key features of the holometabolous condition is the developmental and ecological separation of their life cycle into a feeding stage, the larva, which typically bear working mouthparts for the bulk processing food but lack capabilities for mating and flight, versus the reproductive stage, the adult, which is endowed with locomotory organs of functional wings and legs, and genitalia that efficiently complete reproduction.
