    The color pattern on this bird is striking. Great capture, Pat!

  4. Lovely photo,, but I hate these birds,, they are absolute bullies at the feeder, demolish suet in an hour flat…………… I hate to say, I pull the food in when I see them.

  5. Wow, that’s a striking photo, Pat!

  6. Jim says:

  10. Very beautiful. I just love Starlings in their winter attire.

  11. They are just annoying birds around here….but I am fascinated by their looks, generally. This one has details that ours don’t…I think. This is such a wonderful image!

    A truly stunning photograph!

  23. Teresa says:

    Great capture. I love the editing on this one.

  24. Beautiful!! I love starlings, they’re pretty, and they’re fascinating to watch, probably because they’re smart and very social. I am puzzled by the number of people who hate them, thinking that they bully other birds, because the only birds I’ve ever seen starlings bully are other starlings! Robins, blackbirds, and even the big wood pigeons we sometimes get on the bird feeder are all more aggressive to other species, sometimes spending so much time chasing them off that they have no time to eat!

    Great picture. I love it!

  25. If you could speak bird talk I’m sure you might hear a few cuss words!

  26. LOVE it! I’m so glad you came by to share on Weekly Top Shot #65!

  27. A handsome bird indeed!
