Cape Glossy Starling.. another visitor to the tree..

Cape Glossy Starling (Lamprotornis nitens)

This is known as the glossy starling because of its iridescent plumage.

Their preferred habitat is fairly open country, and they eat insects and fruit, consequently the visit to the fruit salad tree…. The Starlings are a fairly wide spread bird, taking up living in countries throughout the world in one form or another… so I will just add a few photos of this bird who came to taste the fruit and have a drink of water….
