Photo description:

The Bali Starling is restricted to the island of Bali in Indonesia, where it is the island's only endemic vertebrate species. The bird was discovered in 1910, and in 1991 was designated the fauna symbol of Bali. Featured on the Indonesian 200 rupiah coin, its local name is "Jalak Bali". specific epithet commemorates the British ornithologist Lord Rothschild, as the inventor of this bird species, The Bali Starling, Bali’s regional mascot, is critically endangered, hovering immediately above extinction in the wild for several years now (BirdLife International 2006). The Bali Starling is listed in Appendix I of CITES. Trade even in captive-bred specimens is strictly regulated and the species is not generally available legally to private individuals. There are 2 remaining locations on Bali where the birds exist in the wild: the West Bali National Park; and Bali's small island of Nusa Penida. (WIKIPEDIA)
