A Plum-coloured Starling [I have only seen this species about three times]

He's enjoying a sun-bath

Fair exchange - The bug is neat!

Our Starlings, (illegal immigrants from Europe) just don't stack up next to yours....

With those shades on he could've been a traffic officer :?

We have a variety of starlings here, and occasionaly the european starling [illegal immigrant], however, this chap is scarce, and it was nice to see and capture him.

Jake - I agree with the previous poster - our Starlings do not look like that at all! GREAT photos, as always

Very colorful bird Jake. Nice catch!

If big ears moved those ears fast enough....it might be able to fly.:-)

Fantastic shots, as usual, Jake. Oh, the ones that get away I feel your pain.
