Great as usual!
Fabulous colours. I learned somewhere that the birds of paradise in Papua may have evolved from starlings. This one certainly supports the idea. Thanks.
You're welcome Cindy!
Yes DanielePralong...It is a Rueppells Starling. I have corrected it. THANK-YOU !!!!
Hi Cindy! This is not a superb starling. The superb starling is quite well described in the following link complete with pictures:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superb_Star...There are also quite a few pics of the superb starling on Noah. This may be Ruppell's starling. Maybe Noah in-house bird gurus Atul, Liam and Malcolm can confirm!
What a striking bird!
