A really bad hair day.

Found this starling chick on the road.
Moved it to the sided, hope the adults can find it.

Not a fan of starlings, but one at a time they aren't bad for an invasive species.

Sturnus vulgaris
Starlings are great vocal mimics: individuals can learn the calls of up to 20 different species. Birds whose songs starlings often copy include the Eastern Wood-Pewee, Killdeer, meadowlarks, Northern Bobwhite, Wood Thrush, Red-tailed Hawk, American Robin, Northern Flicker, and many others.
