White-cheeked Starling – overstayed?

posted in: Migration-Migrants | 0

“I saw two White-cheeked Starlings (Spodiopsar cineraceus) in June this year in Macao.

“References suggest that White-cheeked Starlings are only winter visitors to Macao and leave by April.

“These birds have probably overstayed, unless the territory is extending. Male shown in the image above.”
