I don't know why some folks hate starlings as they are beautiful birds especially when the sunlight catches the irridescence on their feathers, they turn a wonderful bluey green, and they are excellent songsters too. Great photo Dan, looks like she's got a leather jacket and a worm.

I agree with Cyril, another plus is that starlings must be one of the cleanest garden birds. We have two bird baths and they are in them every day.

This is the early photographer that catches the early bird catching the worm. Excellent shot

Thanks for the comments. I was lucky enough to have my camera with me and just happened to catch it at the time so didnt have to wait long for it.
