Violet-backed Starling

Cinnyricinclus leucogaster


That bird was restless and was almost impossible to approach. The picture is a little bit blurred, but that's the best one I have.


Found widely in woodland of mainland sub-Saharan Africa.


Also called Plum-coloured Starling or Amethyst Starling.
