European Starling | Étourneau sansonnet | Sturnus vulgaris: Taken on April 20, 2015, from the West Vancouver seawall, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. Not baited, called in or set up.
[Update: I should have pointed out that I included the photo below, even though the bird’s head is turned away from the camera, because it has caught what appears to be an earwig. I don’t like earwigs, so this starling is doing a good deed. Will I actually start liking them, as a result? Unlikely.]
