really beautiful, pat!
Pat, you have such great detail here, and you really brought out the colors. Gorgeous!
Amazing colouration!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Although considered a pest bird here in the south, I love the beautiful colors of the Starling and never miss a chance to photograph them! This photo really shows off the great colors!
Beautiful! Great job!
Look at that colour and design! Can’t beat it! Who says the Starling doesn’t have style! lol
He’s gorgeous Pat! What you do with your captures! Margie
Lovely colors on your Starling. great capture!
Pat, this is a lovely shot!
You achieved some great bokeh that compliments the color of the feathers.
Beautiful photo, a bird with delicious details. Greetings.
Very cute bird! I think winter is good season to watch various kind of birds. Nice shot!
Great photo of a beautiful bird.
Mick, I can’t get through your comment verification, but wanted you to know how much I like your shots of the Galahs.
gorgeous! very nice image 🙂
So beautiful! The blue, green and purple colors are fabulous! I’ve not seen this bird before.
Incredible detail. I have never seen this bird before!
just beautiful; so many textures happening
Wonderful shot Pat! I love the textures and colour of this bird.
Just look at those feathers! Your shot has such clarity and beauty. Thank you for sharing!
Many people don’t realize it, but starlings have great plumage! That’s a beautiful photo!
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!
i LOVE your bird pics!!! AWEsome!!
I really love this photo!
The detail you have captured in these feathers is amazing Pat, and what a beautiful bird it is!
Caught at the right time in the right light the starling’s plumage is really glamorous! Gold speckles and silver drapery!
Great shot of the European Starling Pat. They are pretty birds.
Absolutely gorgeous photo and your blog is a pleasure to view! Well done!
Even the most common birds, often looked upon as a pest, have the most magnificent plumage.
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
Love the coloration of their plumage and you’ve captured it so well here, Pat. 🙂
You make starlings look fabulous!
You have capture this pesky birds beauty with amazing detail.
Well, that bird sure looks bedazzling in its winter plumage doesn’t it! Looks like its all dressed up for the Oscars! You’d never guess it was a common starling! Instead, it is a star!
You captured a beautiful photo of starling. The colors and details are amazing!
I just looked and can see starlings in my wood duck nesting box again..Poor woodies don’t have a chance against them…
