European Starling, Sturnus vulgaris, Male Displaying.

This bird perched at the top of a small hawthorn tree, Crataegus monogyna, puffing up his feathers and singing with whistles, shrieks and clicking sounds.

Photo taken in late October in Brinsworth, Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

 

Camera: Nikon D300

Lens: Nikon AF-S VR 70-300 f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED
