Superb Starling

Spreo Starling

Superb or spreo starlings are beautiful Africa relatives of our native starling. Flocks can be seen in the scrubland and savannah of East Africa, where they largely feed on insects, fruit and some seeds.

Our birds generally nest two or three times each year, building a scruffy nest in a nest box. The adults are provided with a lot of insects to help them rear the chicks. The young leave the nest after about three week and look like dull versions of their parents.
