Violet-backed Starling

Cinnyricinclus leucogaster

Description:

Purple above and white below. I spotted him with my binos first, and by the time I got my camera up this was the best photo I could get. Luckily nothing else is this color so you can still tell what it is :)

Habitat:

In tall trees near a creek in a mostly thorn scrub area.
