That Bird Is Superb

Superb Starling, Birding Kenya, Birds of Kenya, Wild Kenya Safaris,
A superb starling at Ngutuni Sanctuary in Tsavo East Kenya


With its iridescent blue wings and orange red breast, the superb starling can be found across all of Kenya's national parks. Normally spotted around the camps, lodges and areas with acacia trees, its superb colors cannot help but grab the immediate attention of visitors. Filled with confidence and somewhat unafraid of mankind, this bird is easily approachable which hence makes it one of the most photographed birds on a Kenyan safari. 

Watching them constantly hop around as they busily chat away among themselves, their presence makes for a really colorful and enjoyable spectacle.  Have a listen to their song on the link below ...
