Common Starlings, June 5, 2019

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and My Corner of the World
V is for Vulgaris - a Latin word meaning common, as in Sturnus vulgaris, the Common Starling

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, May 5, 2019
I know the darker bird in the center is a Common or European Starling, Sturnus vulgaris, but I am wondering if the other two birds are juvenile Starlings. I hope someone can give me a positive ID on them.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. ...and I'm not the guy to ID them!

  2. Lea,

    I'm visiting this morning from the ABC Wednesday community. Unfortunately, what little knowledge I had about birds flew right out of my head years ago. I loved trying to name the various species using the encylopedia with my kids when they were small. Nowadays if I want to know what is what I ask Google. My how times have changed. :) Nice capture.

  6. I have enough starlings of my own! But you know, they are beautiful when you really look at them close.

  7. They do have a beauty of their own, I think. I see lots of them in my garden but they sure are skittish.
    I'm so glad you are a part of 'My Corner of the World' this week!
