European starling (Sturnus vulgaris)
This species naturally occurs in Europe, from Norway and northern Russia, south to the Mediterranean region. European starlings typically congregate in large groups called flocks, except during the breeding season. Flocking together helps protect them from predators by increasing the number of birds that can watch for predators. Birds in the flock quickly warn others about the approach of a predator.

very beautiful bird and you have captured it nicely, the details are very sharp, superb DOF and blured BG
Very sharp image of the starling. I think, there is lot of space on the left, I personaly would have preferred leaving more space on the right.
Thank you for sharing.
