Birds / Common Starling (Sturnus vulgaris)

Common Starling


The Starling has a range of plumages. Its breeding plumage is shown in the first photo taken in May when the body plumage has very few spots. This is because they have worn off as the feathers brush up against the entrance to the nest hole. In flight it has pointed wings and a short tail. The Starling has a wide variety of songs and calls and is an excellent mimic of other birds as well as frogs, cats and other animals.
