Rose Coloured Starling

Another 1st for me, the Rose Coloured Starling. Alright its not an awesome adult male, but what a great bird. I have thrown one image of a common Starling in with the Rose-coloured above for comparison. Look at the pale yellowish bill base compared to the common Starling and how the bill is shorter and more blunt looking.

This juvenile Rose-coloured Starling is a lot more pale than a juvenile Starling, but has much darker wing markings. Two new birds in two days, who knows what might happen next, its been a great week for migrants on the east coast.
