European starling

Sturnus vulgaris

Description:

It is about 20 cm (8 in) long and has glossy black plumage with a metallic sheen, which is speckled with white at some times of year. The legs are pink and the bill is black in winter and yellow in summer; young birds have browner plumage than the adults. It is a noisy bird, especially in communal roosts and other gregarious situations, with an unmusical but varied song.

Habitat:

They prefer urban or suburban areas where artificial structures and trees provide adequate nesting and roosting sites.
