This is a European Starling and it's an adult in winter plumage.

Hi Edgy and a warm welcome to you from those of us on staff here at BirdForum

The bird is a European Starling. Quite common over here in the states.

Although an introduced species, it is in American field guides but it surprises me how often American birders struggle to ID a Starling?
