A couple of starlings outside my home, down on the pavement, getting physical. I’m not sure if this is some kind of mating ritual or what. Are they fighting, are they playing or are they lovin’ ? I think male and female starlings look the same so there is no clue in their appearance. All I know is I crept a little bit too close to them and they spotted me and flew off superfast. I think starlings are really beautiful birds – that sleek beak look makes them ” the concorde of birds ” for me.
