A bit fluffed up in the cool climate, Mary, but still looking handsome.
It looks like they have each others' back.
It's nice to see starlings posed so innocently, so I can admire them, rather than run out and chase them away from the suet feeder I have hanging from a tree for the small birds. Starlings can make an end to the suet in a very short time. This is a fine shot!

When you see them up close like this it shows how gorgeus their plumage is

This is great, Mary - I rarely see a starling in the garden, but other people say I am lucky as they are so greedy. I have really enjoyed yours.
They are now uncommon over here for some reason.
Mary MacADNski: They have all moved over to North America. Canada Geese have emigrated to Britain. Strange?

Regardless on your thoughts on starlings, you have to admire their plumage. This gives us a good front and back views.
They are great birds to watch as they squabble noisily Mary
Ahhh... so cute in the light.
This is the sweetest shot of starlings I've seen, Mary. Again, your lighting is superb.
They seem to have fallen out Mary.
Beautiful shot Mary!
Charming shot with lovely light!

Great detail and colouring, Mary.
Looking a trifle chill!

Never seen then around where I live. They are so beautiful! I love the focus, it's like they are floating in the tree. Excellent capture! Mary.
