Common Or Green Iora..?please I.D.

To-day while birding at 1.30pm-a flock of birds about a 100 strong landed on a tree about 40 meters away the day was cloudy and noon was like dusk.pics taken of the birds may not be the same bird but in the same flock.Sorry to bother i feel they may be Common iora but only one white wing bar & greyish head to olive -green with coverts yellowish green and same colour underparts.Thanks

Hi Manjeet,

The bird appears to be a Daurian Starling (also known as Purple-backed Starling). Click here for some photos of them
