    Starlings usually bring out mixed emotions but when they’re caught in fresh plumage and their iridescence is revealed there is no argument that this is one gorgeous bird. Fantastic shot!

    Even the most common birds, often looked upon as a pest, have the most magnificent plumage.

  28. Hi there – they may not be native to the USA (or Australia for that matter) – but they still are a fine looking bird when seen like this.

    Cheers – SM
