Seen at 5pm EST on our feeder. slim narrow neck with a very defined pattern on back side (looks almost like some orange accents) . Very "pointy" bill like a woodpecker. Speckled belly, black eyes, narrow width to head that had a predominantly tan color.

European Starlings are pretty common on our feeder but typically have the more shiny, green/purple coloring  that makes them so easy to identify.

 

but I did suspect a Starling at first glance....

Yes, this is a young European Starling molting into adult plumage (adult Starlings have white speckles in the winter).

I'd like to feed in eastern North Carolina on some pork BBQ, cole slaw, hush puppies, and iced tea!
