Spotless Starling

Sturnus unicolor Temminck, 1820

The Spotless Starling (Sturnus unicolor) is a passerine bird in the starling family Sturnidae. It is closely related to the Common Starling S. vulgaris, but has a much more restricted range, confined to the Iberian Peninsula, northwest Africa, southernmost France, and on the islands of Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica. It is largely non-migratory. Source: Wikipedia
