The Cape Glossy Starling

Lamprotornis nitens (22 cm) 764

The starlings are gregarious and the species intermingle, often becoming very tame around camp. They can be a delight, performing aerobatics before roosting at night. They often perch in treetops, making a loud noise (a harsh, high-pitched croaking).
