Mutant starling?


Starlings are busy, noisy birds that like to flock together and don’t mind being aroud people. We see a lot of them in the city. They are dark with a speckled look.


The other day, I spied one that was partly white. I wasn’t sure what kind of bird it was, but it was the shape of a starling, acted like a starling, and kept with a flock of starlings and pigeons.


I managed to “zoom in” on it before it flew away. Looking at the picture, I’m more convinced that it was a starling: the feathers that do have pigment look like starling feathers.


If anyone wants to look for it, the bird was at Sherbourne and Shuter, one block up from Sherbourne and Queen.
