Negro???

This starling is bothering a lot of birdwatchers in the Netherlands. Could it be a first summer male spotless starling, Sturnus unicolor?

    Hi Marcel,

    this is the same bird that the one shown at the Leo J R Boon website Cursorius. The blue bill base clearly indicates a male. The very minor in size, less spread and white and V-shaped crescents to the coverts, underparts and tertials are ok for a 2nd cy male spotless starling (Euring 5), that all in all can have arrested plumaje until he eventually complete his moult up to early November. This bird is in active moult as shown according some other pics (p7, p8 & p9). Common starlings have heart-shaped coverts and somewhat orangey edges to their remiges and this bird doesn't show any of these features. Furthermore, just in case the flight feathers would be worn off, the white crescents would previously have been worn off as well. Light pinkish legs fits ok for spotless as the overall black plumage do.

    As my collegue Alfonso said, Congratulations for this first for the Netherlands.
