Beginning of a beautiful relationship


I found this pair of Brahminy Starling (Sturnia pagodarum) birds at Baramati. 

It is usually seen in pairs or small flocks in open habitats on the plains of the Indian Subcontinent.

Like most starlings, the Brahminy Starling is omnivorous, eating fruit and insects.

    1. The caption is meant for the two birds. Usually a beautiful relationship starts after a discord. :)

    3. I associate this with the 'regression towards the mean' phenomenon. A relationship works well once you realize.
