Thursday evening was beautiful and calm.

Just another day at Coconut Point right?

HELLO LITTLE STARLING

I had just gotten off of work and went to the beach to join the usual gang hanging out by the treehouse.

And tonight we had a visitor – a Samoan Starling (Aplonis atrifusca).

It’s still a young starling – gradually growing it’s adult feathers and learning to fly.

It made us all laugh nervously as it flew for only a few seconds…

The Starling perched on my shoulder and nipped on Paolo’s ears.

This is the friendliest wild bird I’ve ever known
