European Starling

The European Starling, Sturnus vulgaris, is a very common visitor nationwide.  They are a nuisance because they appear in large groups and can be very messy.  They can clean out the feeders pretty quickly if allowed.  They do have pretty markings when viewed closely, especially in their breeding colors.
