Grey Bird in Minnesota

Recommended Posts

We have had this bird on our deck recently.  He is about 7-8" tall.  We live in a wooded area by a creek.   It also appeared his head could swivel all the way around (but I could have been mistaken)

It didn't seem like a Grey Jay or a Cowbird...which seemed to be the most prominent in our area, when I did searches

Welcome to Whatbird!

This is actually a juvenile European Starling!

Some little clarifications to your post: "He is..." (I don't think you can tell the gender of a juvenile in the field), "swivel all the way around" (I also think you were mistaken, because, contrary to common belief, even owls cannot do this feat), and "Grey jay" (Gray Jays recently got their name changed to Canada Jays).

Great...thank you for the clarifications.  We are very novice - but love and appreciate our backyard birds. :-)
