Sky Watch Friday - Red-winged Starling


One of our local city dwellers stopping long enough for me to take a photo of him. The Red-winged Starling is fairly common in this part of the world, but are generally quite shy.
For more great pictures go to the Sky Watch website.

Very nice shot for Sky Watch, Max/ I like the bits of highlights on the silhouettes. We have Red-Wing Blackbirds here but they are generally not city-dwellers.

VRY-STAAT!!!! Hi fellow countryman - lovely post. Of course I know the colors on this bird. . .so while the silhouette is well done, I know it doesn't hold a candle to the reality of it. Very nice post. Good to see you on SWF.
