Bird in aviary at Pensthorpe in 2006
No interactions present.
I've seen the scientific name for the Superb Starling given as Lamprotornis superbus, and I'd be grateful if someone could please let me know which is its accepted binomial name.
This is a lovely bird very aptly named. I have checked Zimmerman, Turner & Pearson. Birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania, Helm, 1996 which gives the name as Lamprotornis superbus; this book is getting on a bit so I double checked Gill & Wright, Birds of the World Recommended English Names, Helm, 2006 which is in agreement.
Also this is the scientific name I'm aware of and have used to identify an observation previously. Hope this is of help Anthony.
Many thanks, Ray, that's most interesting and helpful.
