Common starlings, Sturnus vulgaris, are pretty much horrible birds. They have two (and only two I can think of) interesting features.
They are the birds that so often fly in close formations that swarm back and forth in huge "murmurations."
And, they are pretty smartly dressed when they are teenagers. Iridescent feathers and lots of spots. Oddly enough, they also have black bills, while the adults have yellow ones. But the shape is pretty distinctive.
Spent some time trying to get the residue off the trailer. I think I'm closing in on a semi-efficient method that works.
