Bird #4 — European Starling

sturnus (starling) vulgaris (common)

Des Plaines, Illinois — home

I was looking out the living room at a Robin when I spotted this Starling foraging on the front lawn.

For some reason, this is the one common neighborhood bird that I hadn’t become familiar with as a kid.  Dad had pointed out the others to me, and mentioned whenever he heard them sing, but I don’t recall him ever telling me about Starlings.
