Starling............................................................................ on the fat ball feeder

 I have spent most of this weekend out in the garden... tidying up and planting a few new flowers.

The Starlings are enjoying the fat balls...

... and are probably the most colourful birds I have in my garden at the moment.

I hope to get out walking next weekend so hopefully have more wildlife to share.

Linking to Our World Tuesday and Wild Bird Wednesday

Such incredible detail of these beautiful birds. They are much maligned, I think. We had a nesting pair for a few years and they were lovely. Enjoy your week. - Karen

The oil purples and greens on the Starlings are brilliant when the light shines on them like that. From Findlay

I can just see the ornery twinkle in his eye ... and even a slight smile. They are beautiful birds even though their reputation is a little tarnished :)

Great shots of the Starling. They would eat you out of house and home, wouldn't they?
