Iris Glossy-Starling

Lamprotornis iris (Oustalet, 1879)

The Emerald Starling (Coccycolius iris) is also known as the Iris Glossy Starling. It is a small starling with a metallic green crown, upper body, wings and tail. The ear-coverts and underparts are metallic purple. Both sexes are similar. Its placement in a monotypic genus Coccycolius is disputed; some unite it with many other glossy-starlings in Lamprotornis.
