Seahouses Starling

 

The birds is Seanhouses are also pretty unafraid of humans. This starling was sitting on the bench in front of me - a rather bedraggled bird, waiting for someone to drop the odd crumb or fried chip.

A very good portrait of a Starling down on its luck, Tom..."Spare a bob or two for a boid in need, guv!".
Tom Wilson: It is rather down at heel, isn't it?

A great shot! full of details!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Anne
Starlings and other birds will act like that if they live near food vendors. Normally they would be shy. It is like pigeons in a park. In the country they are scared or shy of humans.
Tom Wilson: Very true, Mary
We had the same experience at Studland Bay in Dorset in May, the birds came and sat on the end of our table at the tearoom and very little would frighten them off.
Tom Wilson: Survival beats timidity smile
