Common Starling

Sturnus vulgaris

Description:

medium-sized black, but also colorful bird with a yellow bill, in the starling family Sturnidae.

Habitat:

All of N. America, but this one was seen at my old church across the street from my house, where there is lots of plants and wildlife.

Notes:

These birds are usually very afraid of me, so I would consider my self lucky to get this good of a close-up.

One thing about starlings...they are pretty noisy and cocky. I have no trouble spotting them, because of the noise. Good job on this spotting on your part.
