In this amazing video capture of a band of thieves, starlings are caught raiding a car wash machine in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
The owner of the car wash only knew that his money was vanishing - and accused the vendor of the machine of stealing the cash. When the company set up a hidden video camera to catch the thief, they found that it was a bunch of starling, climbing inside the machine to get the shiny quarters.
The car wash attendants would occasionally find quite a number of quarters lying around the floor of the machine in the morning - all the shiny coins that the birds had dropped during their raids!
