Starling

Sturnus vulgaris

Notes:

This starling was among the first seen in my garden in March last; it was cold, snow, and they could find food very difficult......I put apples on some branches, and they were grateful !:) Within this framework, the starling shaking his head of snow.

You're seeing what we all see. It looks like it was a well-timed shot that caught the bird as it shook its head.

Why am I seeing a swirl for a head? Did this happen to other people?

Amazing timing :)
