This is one of the African Glossy Starlings of the genus Lamprotornis, but I can't be sure which.
Nicely exposed shot. These iridescent birds are hard to get accurately recorded on film/sensor.

You really managed to capture this bird's shimmering colors. I would imgine that it isn't as simple as it may seem.

Hello Nichole, the bird you've captured is a Emerald Starling (Lamprotornis iris) from western Africa. You have captured the iredescents nicely. :)

Toucadoo is correct. Lamprotornis [Coccycolius] iris - Emerald Starling - an adult.
