July 15, 2016 – Pale-winged Starling (Onychognathus nabouroup)
These starlings are found in arid habitats of southwestern Africa, including Angola, Namibia, and South Africa. They eat fruit, nectar, pollen, seeds, and arthropods, foraging on the ground and picking food from plants or catching prey in the air. They also sometimes pick parasites from large mammals, such as Zebra. Pairs build nests together from sticks and dry grass and may raise two broods a year. Females incubate the eggs and both parents feed the chicks.
