In appearance, very few would live up to their name and this bird of Africa just does that. I guess the person who was christening this bird relied on the first expression on seeing it! Superb Starling is absolutely Superb.
This one would mesmerise you with its shades of glossy blue, reddish orange, black spots on its side wings, white band adorning its chest and to top it all white spots for eyes. And its a starling!!!! Being from India, I did not expect a starling to be so colourful as if it has just come out playing the colour festival of “Holi”.
This one is endemic to East Africa and not wide spread across the continent. As the starling breed goes they are unafraid of the humans and you can always get a good shot for you to say ‘Superb’
