So I'm thinking this is a baby starling right? I'm pretty sure it came out of the nest in my birdhouse. I suppose when they are so little they don't have any fear yet. I actually got that close, that wasn't zoomed in. For the past few days he's hopped near me, and Mark will say---hey here comes your buddy to say hi to you. lol

He was itchy, scratchy!

Aaaww, what a sweet little bird! And so brave, too. Maybe he'll be your friend for the rest of his life--know that you aren't going to eat him?

I think that is a fledgling Starling, Loz. They are a solid grayish-brown and look almost NOTHING like their parents.
