I think that is really dangerous for the aircraft and the passengers...

The flock of starlings is way left of the flightpath so there is no actual danger of birdstrike. Anyway, I think these little birds would pass through these mighty engines with no disastrous damage to the plane, wouldn't they?

Peter, not so. A flock of Starlings downed the Ryanair 737 in CIA a few months back. If enough go through a turbine it can have disastrous consequences.

Yeah, Jonathan is right. Even small ones can cause the engine flame out.
