Luminescent colours

Stari – Starling – Sturnus vulgaris

It is autumn and we have started putting out apples for the birds. There is no way to chose the ones the come to feed  in the garden  and the Starling is quite common here. This is the first apple this autumn and with the Starlings around it was finished within an hour.
Why does the Starling have such a bad reputation? Is it not a beautiful bird? Not many sport such luminescent blue and green colours.
