Perlings stay together.

Starlings are quite common here.. especially the asian glossy starling. Even at residential areas. here are an adult shot from the balcony of my house.

Perling Mata Merah
Asian Glossy Starling
Aplonis panayensis

see the glossy green feather, meanwhile the juvenile will have some spotted whitish at the underparts like as seen here.

another kind of starling, the purple backed starling i found more in the gardens.

Perling Belakang Ungu
Purple-backed Starling
Sturnia sturnina

but when i found both species, it seems they just flock together..

here foraging.

see the juv purple backed and adult asian glossy perched on the same tree..
