Rose-coloured Starling & Hypocolius at Uqair – Bird records by Vinu Mathew

On Friday 13 November a group of bird photographers known as Photomates found a large flock of Hypocolius totaling more than 100 birds moving around from one palm tree to another. We also found a Rose-colored Starling in the area, along with more common species such as White-eared Bulbuls, Desert Wheatear, Common Chiffchaff & Indian Silverbill. The below photos were taken by Vinu Mathew who very kindly allowed me to use them with credit also going to Sujitt Nicholas, Mathew Scaria and Rajeev Anandan for finding the location and the Rose-colored Starling.
