FYI FRIDAY - Bali Starling
The Bali Starling, Leucopsar rothschildi, locally known as Jalak Bali, is a medium-sized (up to 25 cm long), stocky myna,  almost wholly white with a long, drooping crest, and black tips on the  wings and tail. The bird has blue bare skin around the eyes, greyish  legs and a yellow bill. Both sexes are similar.
The Bali Starling is restricted to the island of Bali in Indonesia, where it is the island’s only endemic vertebrate species. (An endemic subspecies, the Bali Tiger, has been extinct since 1937.) The bird was discovered in 1910, and in 1991 was designated the fauna symbol of Bali.
The Bali Starling is critically endangered, hovering immediately above extinction in the wild for several years now.   About 1,000 individuals are believed to be held in captivity legally.  The number of captive birds bought on black market is estimated to be twice the number of legally-acquired individuals in the captive breeding program.
