Red-billed Starling

It got better.  While celebrating our encounter with the European Starling over breakfast, we got news of another starling at the same area in Penampang.  The light rain didn’t hamper procedure and the bird was a cracker.  A Red-billed Starling Sturnus sericeus.  It was feeding on an Okra plot and later flew to a banana plant.  Joy for all those with photo gear.

This starling is the first record of the species in Borneo.  Thanks to Eugene and the gang.
