Can someone ID this bird plse. It was part of a group of about ten birds flying from tree to tree in Amanzimtoti. They were feasting on the flower buds of the tree. I saw them two days in a row.
At first I thought it to be Southern Black Flycatchers but nowhere do I read that they move in groups. And also the dark brown eye?

Pantero Leo - thanks, that is indeed a Black bellied Starling! How could I have missed it? I went through THREE bird books and did not pick it up! :wall:

As a duckling, I often find that it is in the book I never looked at. Nothing new to me your predicament, Bobbi. :wall:
