Spotless Starling (2)
|The Spotless Starling is a near rÍlative of the European Common Starling.|
Spotless Starlings are easily told because they are indeed Spotless, lacking the pale chevrons of the other species. They therefore look uniformly black with a purple, rather than green, gloss which makes the plumage look distinctly oily.
A typical bird of towns and villages in northern Morocco, south spain and portugal.
Here it was caught in the park behind Koutoubia mosque.
