Another starling?

There are so many black shouldered starlings around my house and Saikung, I barely appreciate them. Then Martin Williams took me to see the The white-shouldered starling (Sturnia sinensis).

Quite a bit rarer, but often seen near the car park in Mai Po nature reserve. This one has a tasty spider, probably for its chicks, hidden nearby.

Just for reference, this is the black shouldered Starling, perched outside my house.
