Violet-backed Starling male - Birmingham Zoo

Violet-backed Starling male - Birmingham Zoo

This vibrantly solid-colored bird which is also known as the Plum-coloured Starling or Amethyst Starling, is a relatively small species of starling in the Sturnidae family. This strongly sexually dimorphic species is found widely in woodland of mainland sub-Saharan Africa. He looks to be enjoying a tasty morsel of bird chow and is located at the zoo's rather new giraffe exhibit.
