African Pied Starling

Lamprotornis bicolor (Gmelin, JF, 1789)

The Pied Starling or African Pied Starling, Lamprotornis bicolor, is a bird endemic to South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. It is common in most of its range, but largely absent from the arid northwest and the eastern lowlands of South Africa. It is found in open habitats such as grassland, karoo scrub, thornbush and agricultural land, and often associates with farm animals. Source: Wikipedia
