European Starling feeding on grapes

I must confess that I am strongly prejudiced against European Starlings on this continent because of all the negatives that come with them. But when I make a determined effort to observe them dispassionately, I have to admit that they can sometimes be entertaining. I watched this one today sneaking up on some left-over grapes in my back yard, and the pattern of the fall plumage is actually quite striking, and so different from the iridescent summer plumage.

A starling is still a starling, that's what I say.
