“Asian Glossy Starlings (Aplonis panayensis strigata) are underrated birds, having interesting plumage.
“The two images above and the one below are of two different juveniles showing the darker brown-red iris, the lack of hackles, with the mesmerising, streaked underparts (and an attitude to match).
“The image below is an immature bird attaining adult plumage with blood red iris, hackles and early glossy, green plumage.”
