European Starlings

European Starlings on a Barbed Wire Fence

Most people consider Starlings to be pests, largely because they are loud and annoying. They travel in very large flocks and leave messes everywhere they go. But they also happen to be very beautiful if you catch them in just the right light!

Sean lives and works in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and is surrounded by majestic views of the Rocky Mountains and constantly changing prairie landscapes. While focusing on the beauty of the prairies, including the sweeping horizons, the vegetation, and the birds and animals, the Eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains are also a favorite place to wander and photograph.

  1. Nice shot Sean, and I agree with you. These birds have so much color to them, especially this time of year, they must be photographed 🙂

    1. Thanks Rob! It really is a great time of year to be bird photographer, especially after such a long cold winter.
