Shiny Birds

European starling, Sturnus vulgaris. Click to enlarge.

It was a beautiful day in Brooklyn today with a cool breeze and strong sunlight. I walked all the way from Brooklyn Heights to Red Hook -- about three miles -- and back. Along the way, these two birds won my best birds of the day award for outstanding flashy iridescence.

Common grackle, Quiscalus quiscula
