    Re: Can you help ID this bird please?

    Not sure if this is a good place for this, but I found a smart phone app that looks like it will be helpful for identifying birds. App is "Merlin Bird ID" by Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Only tried it a couple of times since installing on iPhone, but it is pretty simple to use.

    Saw this bird briefly before it disappeared back in the hole. Highly trimmed in camera to show colors. I was thinking Starling, but it looks different than the photos in my book and Merlin is useless without a tail.

    What I saw.

    Here I was going to chime in on being able to identify the European Starling. It's one of the few I know, but I'm too late. LOL

    Re: Can you help ID this bird please?

    If you ever want to get into birding more, I offer one tidbit of advice. Don't get a book with color photographs of the birds. I have a Golden Guide from 1989 that I used in my ornithology class. It has color illustrations instead of photos. With photos you'll tend to look for that *exact* bird, but with illustrations you look for an illustration that closest resembles the bird, because illustrations are not photos of real, living birds. It's hard to explain, but drawings are better.
