Mmmmm this is a run of the mill starling. They can look very cool in the right light

You will most certainly be seeing more of them now that the one has found your feeder...:p

Yeah, get them in the sunlight and they have beautiful irridescent colours in the feathers.

Yes again, they are very gregarious and once one finds your feeder the rest of the gang will soon follow. They also roost in huge numbers at times, when starlings from all around will gather in the evening. If you can find such a roost it is well worth visiting and waiting for dusk. The starlings first gather in trees, on cables etc., then the whole flock will take to the air and perform sometimes amazing aerial ballets (known as "murmurations").

I have seen these murmurations on many occasions and always find them a great spectacle, they often draw crowds of viewers in well known places.
