ID?

We identified this one as Rueppell's long-tailed (or glossy) starling, although illustrations seem to show the back of the head as black, not glossy blue. To me it looks close to the species you posted immediately before, but with more black on its forehead.

Sorry if there was confusion. I was identifying the bird I posted on the previous page (post #1349) at the request of noelcmn.

Want a fish? This one's called a HOGFISH and all the specimens were swimming with their backs out of the water. Curious.

The more genteel Saddle Billed Stork-a real favorite bird that I will be on the lookout for when I visit Kruger Park.
