Glossy Starling

The Greater Blue-eared Glossy-starling or Greater Blue-eared Starling (Lamprotornis chalybaeus) is a bird that breeds from Senegal east to Ethiopia and south through eastern Africa to northeastern South Africa and Angola. It is a very common species of open woodland that undertakes some seasonal movements.



Below is a picture I took a couple weeks ago walking in Lushington Valley. A mass of starlings , about 50 or so, were flying from thorn bush to thorn bush. My camera is a beginners, but changed a few of the colours using Picaso and there you have it? how many glossy starlings can you spot in the trees?
