Great photo. I saw quite a few Starlings on a visit to NZ a couple of years ago but found it march harder to find birds such as Tui and Bellbird.

Starlings, introduced from Europe, are a pest here. You bird is pretty in the cherry tree.

It's easy to overlook common birds such as the Starling. You did it justice!
Very nice image shows its iridescent plumage.

Enjoyed your post!

Hi Betty great shot. If you care to go to my post, you will see a very different species of Starling.

Handsome bird! Here they flock in the hundreds - yes, hundreds - in fall. It's like a great, black cloud passing over.
