By NaturesHaven
Starling having a tussle with a Collared Dove, the Starling landed on the Doves back in an attempt to get it off the tree........and no the Starling is not being naughty.....GrinGrinGrin

Thanks for the votes and comments on my last upload (the Robin) very much appreciated.

A big thank you to Skeet1away and Johnjo58 for their User Awards for the singing Robin......again very much appreciated and treasured.

Brilliant. Well done, my friend. An amazing capture - (me too thought it would be X-rated at first!!!Grin )
I know starlings are a bunch of covetous trouble-makers. but this beats all - never thought one would have the nerve to tackle something as big as a pigeon or a dove!
