Lake Kerkini Rarities - Part 1: Rose-colored Starlings

Rosy Starlings - Sturnus roseus (Aγιοπούλια) are beautiful birds, comming from Asia, but only approaching Europe in its eastern parts. A flock of more than 200 species was seen in Lake Kerkini, so I had the chance to take some close pics.

Τα Αγιοπούλια είναι σπάνιοι επισκέπτες από την Ασία. Είχαμε την ευκαιρία να τα συναντήσουμε φέτος στην Κερκίνη.

That's how it looks like, when you first see the flock
