Lords of the flies


Red-cheeked Starlings were feasting on flies earlier this week.....................


This was near Oshamanbe................






There were piles of fishing nets which and flies were swarming all over them, an insect all-you-can-eat for the starlings.................






This is a common summer visitor to Hokkaido but has a very limited range in east Asia,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,






These are all males.....................








Some females photo-bombed this shot............


There must have been over a hundred of them.............

  1. I have seen many of the world's starlings but Red-cheeked is not one of them. Very handsome bird.
