The European Starling, Common Starling or just Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) is a passerine bird in the family Sturnidae.

This species of starling is native to most of temperate Europe and western Asia. It is resident in southern and western Europe and southwestern Asia, while northeastern populations migrate south and west in winter to these regions, and also further south to areas where it does not breed in Iberia and north Africa. It has also been introduced to Australia, New Zealand, North America, and South Africa.

Hi Marcin. This is a bird that is over looked very often. Yet seen up close in a first class picture like this shows their beauty. With so many colours in the feathers. Which look even better in the winter. Taken with fine detail With a good pose. TFS.
