Darling Starlings

I was drawn to my window today to see what all the ruckus was about in our back yard.  A group of Starlings were fighting over the food in the feeder.  They were quiet noisy as they fought and pecked at on another over the food.  Several birds set on the railing waiting their turn at the feeder.  Apparently there is a pecking order when it comes to eating.  I photographed these two birds as they set on the railing waiting their turn to eat.  As I looked threw my lens I couldn't help but notice how pretty they were up close.  In our neck of the woods Starlings are not well thought of, but as I looked at them closer I thought they were kind of pretty.  I like the purple and teal colors in their feathers and all those little speckles.  As I observed them I saw one bird fight off all the rest for his spot at the feeder.  After he had is fill he left too.  Just another day in the country! :)
