Fantastic violet-backed starling sighting during the Jan. 21 WildEarth afternoon drive (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0Ui2jIHE3o). The footage starts at about the 1:30:00 mark. Tristan said these birds rarely hold still and don't typically stay close enough to a drive vehicle to allow for closeup head-shots, so he was quite thrilled by this sighting:
