From what I can make out of it, I’s go for an immature or female Satin Bowerbird.

Dear folk,

At first I thought this distant bird was a starling, and took little notice, but then it looked somehow different.  Autofocus could not cope with all the leaves around, and as I reached for the manual focus switch it flew off.  Ah well, such is the lot of bird photographers.

Is it a juvenile starling?  The striations/speckles seem too  definite a pattern for a starling to me.

Callum Brae, 1st April 2014.

Many thanks

Margaret Leggoe
