European Starling – Seven Islands State Bird Park – May 2015

The bluebird is either a juvenile or female – the males are completely blue.

The European Starling was first brought to the US in the early 19th century by Shakespeare enthusiasts. Now among the most numerous song birds in the country. Wonderful coloring.

We will be leaving Tennessee after this. Next couple of posts will be from the Okefenokee Swamp on the Georgia – Florida border.
