Large flocks of Daurian Starling/Purple-backed Starling (Agropsar sturninus) at this wetlands site. The flock I was watching had in excess of 95 birds.
They forage both on fruit and insects. For insects they behave like a “mixed foraging party of birds”, swarming through a tree, checking under foliage.
In the image below, you can see one checking out a spider’s nest.
