Common Starling in Xuan Thuy NP, Vietnam

Happy New Year 2015!

I had been in Xuan Thuy with clients in the middle of Dec, 2014. As normal, we saw lots of shorebirds and other winter visitors. Before leaving for Hanoi, we saw a big flock on a rice field, a bit far away and dark at the first spotting, then they flew closer to us - Common Starling. A nice surprise!

Common Starling

Wish you a successful year!

  1. Tien, please refer to my book at page 350 you will see more details about the status of this species in Vietnam. All of my records and photos of this species also came from Xuan Thuy NP.

    Happy New Year 2015!
