As the name suggests, the Bali starling (Leucopsar rothschildi) is endemic to Bali, Indonesia, and has been adopted as their national bird. Also known as the Bali Myna and Rothschild’s Myna. It is known locally as Jalak Bali. The extraordinary beauty of the Bali starling has been a major factor in driving it to the brink of extinction – its pure white plumage and blue streak across the eye have made it irresistible to collectors. Native to Indonesia, the Bali mynah is critically endangered due to poachers and the illegal pet trade.
