Violet Backed Starling

Back from our adventures :-) hello again :-)

It is good to be home. We had a great time.

The garden is teeming with the most stunning birds. I am trying to get better at learning their names.

This is a Violet Backed Starling. It likes to hang out in pairs and small flocks in woodland, riverine forest, and wooded parkland, where they feed on fruit and berries. They also opportunistically take insects, particularly winged termites and ants. Some populations are resident, but most are migratory or nomadic.

I haven't noticed them in the garden before but then again, this project makes one much more observant!
Wow, what an amazing bird !
