Magnificent Blue-eared Starlings That Look Too Stunning to Be True

We present to you today the most magnificent blue bird we have ever seen. Meet the Greater Blue-Eared Starling. This stunning bird it is easy to spot because of its magical colors. However to see one you have to be in Africa. They are widely distributed in sub-Saharan Africa, and south through eastern Africa to north-eastern South Africa and Angola. Both genders are similar with teal-blue upperparts that show a brilliant shiny, metallic iridescence in good light.

If you want to spot these beauties you have to be in sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal and southern Mauritania west to eastern Eritrea and Ethiopia. Greater blue-eared starlings are omnivorous birds that will take advantage of any available food source. Insects, seeds, berries, fruit, small mammals, and small reptiles all make up part of their diet, and they may sample many other foods as well. These birds will forage either in trees or on the ground, and typically prefer to walk rather than hop when foraging. They will even land directly on grazing animals to pick away at insects and parasites.

When it comes to nesting, both males and females work together to line the nesting cavity with dry grass, feathers, and similar nesting material. The eggs are green-blue with darker brown or purple dots, and there are 2-5 eggs in each brood. The female parent usually incubates the eggs for 13-14 days, and after the altricial young hatch, both parents will bring the chicks food for an additional 22-24 days. After that, the young starlings are ready to leave the nest but will follow their parents to learn the best foraging spots and food types.

These birds look to magical to be true. Check out the images below and the video that explains more about Blue-eared Starling.

We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.

Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.

However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.

I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold. Now, his loved ones are doing their best to carry on the tradition. His children Robert and Bindi have continued their conservation efforts. Irwin’s wife Terri is also heavily involved.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
