White Starling

Postby kelly111 » Thu Jan 02, 2020 9:12 pm

Me and my son jamee have seen a white Starling about 3 times now over the last week. It has to be a rare bird in white. We have put a photo up that my son got. It's not the best but he got it through the front window of the car. It was over in Lyttelton Harbour. We will go out this weekend and hope to get some good photos. If any one will like to meet up let me know and I can show where it is.
