Kleinglansspreeu/Cape Glossy Starling

Die kleinglansspreeu is gewoonlik so 25 cm groot en weeg tussen 65 tot 112 g. Dit is ‘n relatief groot glansspreeu met ‘n kort stert wat van die ander blouoorspreeus verskil deurdat dit ‘n uniform glansgroen kop sonder donkerblou oordekvere het, plus ‘n rooibrons skouerplekkie en glansgroen pens en sye (geen blou of magenta op sye nie). Dit is groter as die swartpensglansspreeu met heelwat helderder, glansender vere, en die pens is glansgroen en nie ‘n vaal swart nie. Die jong voël is valer en het strooigeel (nie helder oranjegeel nie) oë.

The Cape starling has an adult length of about 25 cm (10 in) and weight of about 100 grams (3.5 oz). The plumage is a fairly uniform bright, glossy colour. The head is blue with darker ear coverts and the upper parts of the body are greenish-blue. It has a lengthy warbling song which may include an imitation of sounds it hears in its environment.
