Wildlife Wednesday – Purple Glossy Starling

Purple glossy starlings live in open woodlands, eating mostly insects and fruits. They are fairly common in their native habitat of tropical Africa. They have beautiful metallic purple and green feathers and bright yellow eyes. You can find them flying freely in the enclosed aviary on the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
