      Male. Tsavo Aviary, Chester, 12th May 2016.

      I've never heard Onychognathus morio called Chestnut-winged Starling, only Red-winged Starling. Is this because i'm a young whippersnapper that doesn't know the proper old names for animals, or is it just a less-frequently used common name? :D

      Chestnut-winged starling in my old Field Guide to the Birds of West Africa (Serle, Morel & Hartwig), which happened to be the book I checked to ascertain the sex of this bird. I grant you that other books and the NEZS Annual Reports use red-winged starling. But is that wing really red? :)
