At first I thought, "those are rather odd markings for a starling, then I saw the title and said, "huh? Peregrine? Watercolor on starling? What? Is it a typo?" Then my slow brain finally caught up and I got it. Very cool.

Coatesian mimicry. I like it. But I don't suppose as many people would enjoy it done the other way 'round. BTW even if you DON'T want a shrubbery, see the 3/09 JHB for recent output.
