Aplonis (glossy starlings)

Wikipedia Abstract

Aplonis is a genus of starlings. These are essentially island species of Indonesia, Oceania and Australasia, although some species' ranges extend to the Malay Peninsula, southern Vietnam and northeastern Queensland. The typical adult Aplonis starling is fairly uniformly plumaged in black, brown or dark green, sometimes with a metallic gloss. The eye ring is often distinctively coloured. Immatures of several species have dark streaked pale underparts.
