Description

The Bali starling is one of the rarest birds in the world and relatively new to science being first described in 1912 by Walter Rothschild (3), from whom the bird gains its specific name. This medium-large starling is almost entirely white apart from black wing- and tail-tips and the striking, bare blue skin around the eye (4). The crest is long and drooping, the bill is yellow and the legs are a greyish blue (4).
