The superb starling is a small but dynamic bird with metallic blues and greens on its chest, back, and wings, while their heads tend to maintain a black sheen. Their bellies are chestnut brown. These birds tend to feed in groups on grounds near villages or herds of other animals. The song of the superb starling is a variety of whistles and warbles, but when alarmed turns into a high-pitched whining sound. Male and females tend to share the responsibilities of building a nest, feeding their young and incubating the eggs.
