Gorgeous picture. Taken by Mucka in South Boston.

Amazing plumage. Can you tell me about this bird. It's also very chubby. Is it going to have babies soon?

Great Pic, you captured the moment !

Based on the short tail and wing feathers and the comparison of the large beak to body size, I'd say it's a fledgling ( young bird just leaving the nest) European Starling.

Great Pic ! You did capture your European Starling in a hilarious pose for his pic. It looks like he may have been shaking off some water. I say he because it looks like his beak could be a brighter yellow and as in breeding season.
