Kjell - what more can I add - two amazing shots, each delightful, together incredible. Here in the SE US, we are definitely NOT big fans of Starlings - as a non-native species with few natural enemies and a tendency to evict Bluebirds from their nests. Are they a native species with you?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments!
Mole, the starling is a very native species, their return from Africa in spring is very much appreciated. For some years they declined in numbers to a worrying extent, but seemingly the population has started to grow again. In our garden we have at least four pairs breeding.
But they do not belong in America, just as the Canadian Goose doesn't belong here. Guess it's a downside of the globalization process.
