I don't suppose he's pining for Antarctica, or for a life in the water, or that he'd want his wings to turn into flippersSad, so he should be content to be a starling.
Fine image, unusual stance, Julia.

From that posturing I see where you got the title, but still a very bit of original thinking for this startling image, Julia.
