Can anyone help me in identifying the bird in this picture below please?
It was seen in early August 2019 whilst on holiday in Dawlish, Devon.
It was taken outside a cafe near some woodland.
The bird was about the size of a blackbird.Perhaps just a little smaller.
All help gratefully received.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I agree with Alan and Catlady that it's juvenile Starling.
It could be pollen. I encountered one in Ireland that had been feeding on New Zealand Flax (Phormium Tenax) but the yellow was only on its forehead.
Yours looks as though its been bathing in it. Another possibility is some sort of pigment abnormality like Flavism.
