A New One


A brand new visitor to our bird bath. A fledgling European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) This guy is probably only a week or so old. Once they get going they grow very fast.

Bath Time


A European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) on the bird bath. These guys are nuts about bathing. They get in and have a great old splash around, then hurry away, wings heavy with water!

What’s Up


A pair of European Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) at the bird bath. These guys love their baths, even in below zero temperatures.

A Bath & A Drink
