De nada Isabela. I only got to study this bird after spotting one myself!

Hola Daniele, muchas gracias por la identificación. You are right it's a Hildebrandt's Starling.

¡Hola Isabela! I believe this bird is not a superb starling but Shelley's or Hildebrandt's starling. The superb starling has a white vent, white chest bar and white eyes.
