Starlings are birds that have been mentioned in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands


In the Real World 

The superb starling (Lamprotornis superbus) is a member of the starling family of birds. It was formerly known as Spreo superbus.


In the Real World 

Starlings make their nests on trees or bushes. They feed on seeds, fruits, and insects. These starlings live in savanna, in thornbush and acacia arid areas, open woodland, lakeshore woodlands, gardens and cultivated fields, at an elevation of 0–2,650 metres (0–8,694 ft) above sea level. This species is 18 to 19 cm (7.1 to 7.5 in) long.These small short-tailed starlings have a long narrow bill, robust bodies, strong feet and a distinctive plumage pattern. Adults have black heads and iridescent blue-to-green back, upper breast, wings, and tail. The belly is red-orange, separated from the blue breast by a white bar. The undertail coverts and the wing linings are white.[2]Juveniles have duller plumage with no more than a suggestion of the white breast band. Their eyes are brown at first, later grayish white.

The superb starling has a long and loud song consisting of trills and chatters. At midday it gives a softer song of repeated phrases. There are several harsh calls, the most complex of which is described as "a shrill, screeching skerrrreeee-cherrrroo-tcherreeeeeet." 

The appearance of the superb starling is very similar to Hildebrandt's starling, also found in East Africa. The superb starling is distinguished by having pale creamy-white eyes, as opposed to red eyes in the Hildebrandt's. Moreover only adult Superb starlings have a white breast band.


Ono's Idol

When Bunga tries to speak with Hadithi, he is stopped by Ono who believes that Hadithi is far too great to be spoken with. He mentions that he is the Starling Savior at Summer Springs.
