Just look at their spectacular plumage, human. Most of its body is covered with brilliant metallic shades of green and yellow. Green head and tail, and yellow breast and belly. That’s not all, this striking creature has ultra-violet blue on its throat, back, and wings. These colors combine beautifully, making this starling stand out from the crowd. We do believe that you can’t keep your eyes off its coat.

Additionally, the white eyes make the golden-breasted starling conspicuous in the world of birds.

Watch its video below.

Unlike many other bird species that offer a different look between the male and female, both sexes of this starling look very similar. Young birds, however, are a duller color.

Golden-breasted starlings distribute from Somalia to Ethiopia, through into Kenya, and then Tanzania.

These birds live in dry, arid areas, usually scrublands and savannas.

Their main diets are insects. But they also feed on fruit and berries.

During the breeding season, female golden-breasted starling builds their nests in tree holes. This nest is made from leaves, roots, and other plant materials and in the shape of a cup. They then lay 3-5 eggs in the nest and start an incubation process of 11-14 days.

Unlike some other species, male golden-breasted starling joins the female in feeding the chicks until fully fledges, about 3 weeks.

Currently, the population of the golden-breasted starling is quite stable.
