Hi Deborah, I like starlings and this colourful photo really is an homage to them. This photo is beautiful, colourful and sharp with the springful touch of the twig. And nice background too! Thank you!

Beautiful capture, very good composition and nice colors
like the pose
this photo represents the Starling very well with all the colour it has and a fine clear focus as well.The details are lovely for this bird, after all is a very common bird whom has uncommon colour to it's plumage.I never overlook common birds as really they are beautiful as any other and I thank you for sharing this star of a shot. Bob
shooting birds is very tough task and this i realised when i tried it and was not at all happy with the quality i got and then i could realise what it takes for a decent bird shot which you have posted here so many times, this one too is a lovely bird shot like your other posts, liked the way you have composed it, lovely lighting, nice pov, sharp image with good details of the plumage,
tfs & regards

What a splendid capture of a Starling showing off its glossy plumage. I like its pose on the budding branch. Great sharpness and lovely colours too. A fine background too!
Many thanks, Ulla
You really caught the shimmering colors on that starling, Deb.
Beautiful details and an excellent pose. : )
I know that they are unpopular birds among birders, as they are very aggressive and undermine local bird populations, but I find their plumage quite striking.
TFS. : )
You have certainly scored top marks for this one. Absolutely beautiful colouring on the feathering, sharp and all there.
Love the leaves which are not intrusive and good feet.

Very intersting shot of this tiny starling,
Perfect details,BG and composition,
Fantastic colors and POV, Welldone.
You're getting to be an expert bird photographer, Debz!
This is a superb captureof a common starling in shining spring plumage. Great sharpness, composition and OOF BG making this starling really stand out,
Well done and TFS!
extra,j'ai vu un reportage a midi sur les degat qu'occasionnent les etourneaux dans la ville de limoge mais lorsque l'on voit une image aussi bien detaillée et avec autant de reflets je ne vois pas comment on pourrait les chasser.
Great exposure to pull out these great details in the dark plumage Deb. Good POV and a pleasing composition as the starling shows you it's good side ;}
I like most of all the characteristic metallic colors seen so well.

A wonderful image of this common Starling.I am not a big fan of the bird,but I do admire their lovely plumage.
You have managed excellent lighting and the colours are brilliant.
The natural setting is attractive and really adds to the beauty of the shot.

Oooh this is a nice one Deberoh! Look at those colours! Sometimes they get a bit of a bad press, but personally i think they are one our most beautifully marked birds, even if they are (or were it now seems) fairly common. Excellent composition, sharp detail and welll exposed. Great job.

As pesky as these are, I like how you captured the iridescence . Very nice POV and perch he is on.
As for footless on the water...well sometimes we want to show the details a bit larger perhaps, and have to sacrifice something

This is an attractive composition, where the diagonal lines add a feeling of dynamics!
The bird is captured with fine details in the plumage and the typical colours come through very well...

What a lovely little thing. The clarity is of EXCELLENT quality. Focusing too. Great job.
Notes are, as always, ... SUPERB.
We have a similar looking bird that comes here every year all the way from Brazil ... just to nest.
It is MOST pleasant to see you again,
