Agree with juvenile Starling.

Adult Starling -- a juvie wouldn't show glossy feathers on the head or neck yet. The head is the last thing to molt on these guys, and they would come in with white tips (like some of the underside feathers on this guy). The bill changes color with the season, so I'd imagine he's done nesting for the year.
