Sturnus vulgaris zetlandicus - Shetland Starling

The Shetland starling (Sturnus vulgaris zetlandicus) is a subspecies of the Common Starling, which lives on the Shetland islands. The difference is that it is slightly darker and bigger then the continental subspecies.

It doesn't look darker on the photo but all of them were like that, so I assume that this is how one of them should look.
