The Superb Starling is a member of the starling family of birds. This species is 18 to 19 cm (7.1 to 7.5 in) long. Adults have black heads and iridescent blue-to-green back, upper breast, wings, and tail. The belly is red-orange, separated from the blue breast by a white bar. The undertail coverts and the wing linings are white. Juveniles have duller plumage with no more than a suggestion of the white breast band. Their irises are brown, later grayish white, eventually the adult's purple.
It can commonly be found in East Africa, including Ethiopia, Somalia, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania.
Spotted in Jurong Bird Park, Singapore.
