European Starling

Sturnus vulgaris


Black bird (feathers shine green and purple when caught in the sun) (one of the birds also had brown specks on its feathers); medium, slightly curved, orange beak; the chicks' calls are short trills


These birds lived in the attic above my room for a month or two during the spring.


They made a nest and I could hear the babies all through the day. The first three pictures are of one parent, and the last two pictures are of the other. I get birds in my attic almost every year, and I suspect it's the same species (maybe even the same parents) that do it. I'd really like to know what kind of birds these are so I could know more about my little "neighbors".
