Lots of Starlings in my garden - very noisy ones - certainly but not this particular type. I've never heard of the Violet-backed Starling before.

Me neither but then I've never been to Africa. With coloring like that I thought it was sparrow.
I dislike them. When we lived in the Catskills they'd come in huge flocks before winter and land in our back field. It was like watching miniature vultures the way they acted.

I've been to Africa and was quite nervous at certain times. Especially viewing the elephants - we had heard the horror stories from the safari guides. Then my dad kept saying oh get closer - I was nervous about being trampled by the enormous majestic animal. These guides claimed that these animals can sprint up to 40 mi. in a splint second. They kept telling us that they had to say "Get on the floor now" to a group because the animal decided to charge. Yikes!

That's the trouble with most things that are worth seeing. There's always danger involved.

One day we pulled up and stopped - there was a small bush. About 3 ft from the Jeep - there was a bird - sitting in this bush. It was absolutely breathtaking with so many different bright colors, blue violet. The name of the bird is named Violet Roller - you can look it up with any search engine. Hubby now wants to move to be closer to his family.

Carolsapple - I'm sure that some of the safari guides like to 'add to the thrill' when telling some of their stories ;-). I don't mean to imply that there's absolutely 'no danger at all', just that part of their brief is to 'enhance the experience'. Your trip sounds fascinating - I live half a mile from a Safari Park in England (https://www.knowsleysafariexperience.co.uk/) though it's many years since I 'did the safari tour' :-).

I'll look it up. Got to see a western tanager. That's a really bright colored bird too. He was far away but I got a pix on my zoom...not a really good one but at least I can see all his colors.

I must have forgotten to hit the reply button. I just looked at a shot of the roller. Wow. He's gorgeous. I'll never see a real one as I'll never go to Africa. When in BC I did see a western tanager which is pretty colorful also. Got a far away pix of him with my zoom. Not good detail but I could at least enjoy his colors.

Nicely camoflaged bird. Looks very alert.

I have been so very late getting on here lately I think everyone else is asleep.

God bless you all.

Never seen a brown starling before; here in S. Europe they're usually black. Thirty years ago you could buy them in the markets, people ate them. Now they know that insectivores should be respected.

I suppose originally, yes. Then it became normal. In my region they didn't ban the sale of songbirds and sparrows for eating until nearly the year 2000.

Interesting my grandmother used to make a concoction - some brown stuff that she'd put on bites and stuff.
