Starling

Very seldom I see a Starling these days in my part of London . . decades ago they were everywhere.

Avian Grey is sister site to American Grey | light and features bird photography that seems to form an increasing part of my current portfolio. My thanks go to Henry the Heron who became very much my passport to the Avian World.

@Devi: Never as far as I cam recall . . in fact, I've seen only about a dozen starlings in London over the last ten years or more !

It has interesting markings. I wonder where they all went.

@B. Thomas: The flocks shift depending on food availability and the presence of predators, I suppose. Same has happened with sparrows which I rarely see these days.
