Starling.............................................................................. visiting my birdbath

I have a couple of Starlings visiting my garden at the moment... 
...they are nesting in my neighbours roof.

Beautiful birds to see up close...  they are so colourful.

He almost looks like a decoration. Wonderful colors.

I like these birds even if they are considered a nuisance. Great shot.

Great photos of the Starling. It's a pity such a beautiful bird is so invasive when it is introduced to other countries.
I love your close photos of the little wood mouse!!

The mix of color on their wings and body is so pretty. A lovely specimen of nature. Great captures.

Sandra said...

I had no idea how much color and detail the starling has... his feathers are a virtual rainbow

Beautiful birds, they are amazing.

Christian Weiß said...

A perfect photo.

Brian King said...

Fantastic shot! They do have great plumage. Too bad they're such a pain in the arse over here.

Your picture captures the colors perfectly ... often, if the light isn't right, they just look black. I enjoy my Starlings even though they are among the bully birds here. Nice post, Andrew ...

HI Andrew The Starlings are at their best at this time of the year and this shots is superb.

Striking colour and pattern on this bird. Our starling (Australia) is a rather plain black.

I agree, they are very pretty birds up close. Great shot (:

I love the colors on Starlings. We had to board up under our roof because they kept making nest and then pooping all over the side of the house.

They are a bit of a pest here, but that does not stop them being good looking!

They are beautiful birds and have a wonderful song as well. Don't see many here in the city.
