Bali Starling

The critcally endagered Bali Starling has a strange call......

Identification 25 cm. Medium-large, stocky starling. Almost wholly white with long, drooping crest, black wing-tips and tail tip. Blue bare skin around eye and legs, yellow bill. Similar spp. Black-winged Starling Sturnus melanopterus has shorter crest, much larger area of black on wings and tail and yellow eyering and legs. VOICE -Variety of sharp chattering calls and an emphatic twat.

Somtimes you just have to LOL
