 Though they are not my favorite bird, when you look close, they have a beauty all their own.

I agree!

I agree, I really don’t want a bunch of them around, but they are beautiful.

Ginny Hartzler said...

They really so, and you captured it wonderfully!

Bill said...

I like 'em all---- except maybe pigeons. Nice picture!

Nice post! Careful look would open a new window to nature.

These birds used to show up in very large groups at my feeder. They would scare off all the other birds. They are rather pretty though. When the sun hits them just right you can see all the different colors in them.

Plenty of those to be seen around here too at the moment. The colours of their plumage in certain lights is truly astonishing.

Starlings are surprisingly beautiful. Their massive flight patterns (murmurations) a delight to the eye! YAM xx

So many people don't like starlings...but, I do. They're beautiful and their song is so pretty! Great close-up.

Splendid close-up with great clarity! I love its speckled plumage!

The Starlings I remember as a kid weren't nearly as pretty as this. They didn't have all those pretty speckles.

One is beautiful but a whole bunch cleaning out the bird feeders are not as pretty. ;-)

I have seen this bird only once when I lived in my old town, and I thought it was so unusual and pretty. You took a great picture of it, Rose.

I totally agree. They are actually very pretty. I just hate that they turn up in large groups and eat everything in sight! They will empty my bird feeder in a matter of minutes!

Michael Rawluk said...

That is how I feel about the.
Very nicely shot.
