Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, slim dark starling. The eyes are brown, and females show large chestnut patches in the wings in flight. Found in the canopy of montane forest, usually in small flocks; often perches out conspicuously on dead snags and other open perches. Vocalizations include simple whistles and squeaky, peevish-sounding notes. Similar to Waller’s Starling, but smaller and slimmer, with brown rather than red eyes, and only females have reddish wing patches.
