Coolest Starling Photo Ever

Starling

So, Bart has me testing out a camera prototype and I got the coolest photo of a starling!  I know, I know what you're thinking, "Sharon, you over estimate a person's interest in starlings."

Perhaps.

But, when I worked at a bird store, I can't tell you the number of people who would come in with blurred photos in the winter of a "cool, new bird" at their feeders.  Oh, how their faces would fall when they were told it was just a starling.  When starlings are in winter plumge, the tips of their feathers have a white spot and theil bills turn black.  Throughout the winter the spots will wear off and by spring, the bill will be yellow again.  This time of year they're kind of cool looking in an evil villan kind of way.
