European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris)

I filmed this one yesterday, today is not easy, because, it was raining. Not easy for the camera.

  2. I didn't know starlings were so pretty. That first shot is outstanding (in the rain, chortle chortle...juvenile humor)

  12. European Starlings... Beautiful shots Bob, you captured them quite nicely. But I have to tell you they (European Starlings), have become a problem at my bird feeders. They arrive in large numbers and consume much of the bird food. They, like all my other birds must survive the cold weather so I continue feeding them all.

  13. They really are beautiful birds, you did well to get these fantastic shots in the rain. I have never seen a Starling in the wild, but would love to.

  19. Lo raro es ver a un estornino solitario, generalmente se mueven en grandes bandos de cientos de individuos.
    Un abrazo,
