chattering or murmuration are both usedGrin
T. S. Eliot we learnt at school for an example of alliteration: "A murmuration of starlings over wolds unwittingly weave"

Well captured on his branch, pretty feather detail. Slightly lightening the catchlight - I can just see it when viewed large - would really bring this lovely bird 'to life' SmileSmile

Super image, Mike.
You are quite right regards this being a very under estimated bird.
These days nowhere near as common as just a few years back.

A beautiful shot of a bird, once so common, that, alas, we don't see too often these days!
