Hi Everyone,
Thanks for the comments and clicks on my last upload. Very much appreciated your time.
Taken a while back and continuing the theme of garden birds (I am afraid), today's offering is a starling with a Mohican hairstyle.
Thanks for viewing.

These birds are the bullies in my back yard, but when the sunlight hits the the feathers the colours are startlingly beautiful, The clarity and background are both excellent, was this taken in the summer as the beak is yellow?

Trev.

This is a great capture Tony and may help me identify a bird I photographed in our bird bath some time ago !! It had very much the same markings without the mohawk of course Smile

Nice colours and BG mate. My 2 'gripes' are that the bird is looking away and that you have lost the tail and wing tip. I know you want my honest opinion mate Wink
