Good morning everyone…  Cape glossy starlings (Lamprotornis nitens) seen in bright sunlight reflects a particularly striking colour,  they are widespread over much of southern Africa. The one shown here was near Mata Mata taking advantage
of a rain puddle in the road! They are very well-known in the campsites to clean up your plates after breakfast, and can be very aggressive towards smaller birds when scraps is lying around. Some people might
think they are a pest, but when they glow in the sun they are one of the most beautiful birds in the park! Take a look and let me know what you think…
Cheers til tomorrow.
