Bird #4 — European Starling

sturnus (starling) vulgaris (common)

Sunday, May 13, 1979 — 11:01 am

Des Plaines, Illinois

This starling was foraging on a front lawn in a residential area.

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