Favorite Images of Bali Starlings

Animals list created by kathy Avatar


A list of my favorite images of Bali starlings.

www.cotswoldwildlifepark.co.uk/animals-gardens/birds/bali-starling/

The Bali starling (Leucopsar rothschildi) is one of the rarest birds in the world and relatively new to science being first described in 1912 by Walter Rothschild, from whom the bird gains its specific name.

Bali starlings are from Bali, an island which is part of Indonesia. They are now found only in one particular forest on the west of the island. Fortunately this is in a protected area, the Bali Barat national park.

They usually live in large flocks, although during the breeding season pairs tend to act aggressively towards one another.

When courting, behaviour displayed includes shrieking and head bobbing movements.

Bali starling’s population has declined rapidly over the past few decades. Falling victim to the illegal trapping for the caged bird trade and industrialisation, these birds have become incredibly close to extinction in the wild – it has been estimated that there are fewer than 50 of them left.
