Max Lakavage, 10/8/13: I'm all about the vibrant green on these starlings. It's smoothly contrasted with the light browns and white that speckle its back, and accented with a maroon/dark red. I especially like the shapes that the feathers make across its back.

Starling - Most people dislike this bird but I love them. They can mimic any sound and I had one that used to "bark" at my feeder if it was out of suet!
