Lamprotornis elisabeth
Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources



The adult miombo glossy starling, formerly called lesser blue-eared, is similar to the greater blue-eared starling, but in good light the belly and flanks are magenta, not well seen in the strongly backlit photos above (Msumbugwe Forest, 4-13). The juvenile in the lower photo (Msumbugwe Forest, 2-08)shows the distinctive mottled, rust-coloured underparts.
