Default Urban wildlife of Toronto

With only one lens, a 24-105mm, the best shots I could make were something relatively tamed and closed.

Most definitely an urban feel. The last one is certainly up close and sharp. Do you know what bird it is? I took a quick glance through my one birding book but didn't see anything quite like it.

Mike,

You are right on the ID of this bird. It is indeed a Starling:

The bird in question is a Starling in winter plumage.
