A Jewel of the Island

The Bali Starling is a medium-sized mynah, almost wholly white with a long, drooping crest and black tips on the wings and tail. Its striking blue bare skin around the eyes and greyish legs further enhance its unique beauty. Endemic to the island of Bali and its offshore islands, this magnificent bird was once a common sight. Sadly, due to habitat loss and the illegal wildlife trade, it’s now classified as Critically Endangered by the IUCN.
