Fine art illustration of a European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The European Starling illustration was completed on 12.10.2011. I know a lot of people dislike these birds, especially in the US where they are an invasive species that have displaced many of the native North American birds. Moreover, they appears to most people as drab and colorless bird. But when closely examined, the lovely coloration of these birds comes into clear focus, which I hope I captured in the illustration. The drawing is based on a photo by Warren Lynn.
