I always try to get the eye of the bird into a photo and it helps to be close.
Some species however, are very difficult to get close to and even if you do, the eye remains elusive. European Starlings are this way. Here are some of my previous photos:
See what I mean? Today, at Humber Bay, I finally got the eye of a close-by Starling.
The eye is shiningly visible but sadly only in one of the 4 photos I took.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
The gray head identifies this as a male House Sparrow.
Ah starling! Most welcome, you bird of good cheer!
Are we to have all your pranks again here?
Where have you stolen last winter your wine?
