Ugh! I can't stand this male of this species! (The females are okay.) They have this irritating, loud "whut-whut-whut-whut-WEEEET!" call that goes on for hours, or at least it seems that way. Frequently several idle slackers will form a treetop gang, each one with its bill pointed skyward, trying to out-whut-whut-whut-whut-WEEEET the others. They always look unkempt and sloppy, the Oscar Madisons of the bird world, plus their long, awkward, misshapen tails look ridiculous. I'll take a short-tailed, quiet (by comparison) Starling over one of these good-for-nothing noise machines any day.
