Blue Starling by Elizabeth Kendall
Clear

The Greater Blue-eared Glossy-starling (Glansspreeu) or Greater Blue-eared Starling (Lamprotornis chalybaeus) is a bird that breeds from Senegal east to Ethiopia and south through eastern Africa to northeastern South Africa and Angola. (Wikipedia)

It was a SPECIAL MOMENT for me when this lovely bird came to sit so close to me that I could almost touch him!

    This a beautiful image of this spectacular bird, well done. On our very first day in South Africa we had fish and chips on the waterfront and these were our first visitors wanting to share our meal. Wonderful memories. Alma

  • Happy that my pic could recall great memories, thank you Alma! x
