What a stunning looking bird.If you don't mind an observation I think you should had put that watermark away from the chest.People like to see the true beauty of a photo as precious as this one.It sort of spoils the original look.
I call them Bali Starlings but they are also called Rothschild’s Mynah, Bali Myna or, as you said, Bali Mynah. They have one at Edinburgh Zoo, a victim of the illegal pet trade. It was stuffed in a poster tube with 14 other Bali Starlings so someone could smuggle them across the border and it was the only one still alive when they were found.
Aw, that's such a damn shame that people try to illegally sell these beautiful and highly endangered birds It's so ssad to hear the story about the birds stuffed into a poster tube! That's absolutely ridiculous! I just can't understand why people put animals through so much stress and pain just so they can gain a quick buck. It makes me so mad
It really is just horrible, apparently there are twice as many Bali Starlings in the iilegal pet trade than there are in zoos and breeding programs. I don't want to know how someone fitted 15 of them into a poster tube no wonder 14 were dead. But the person smuggling them doesn't care if they die aslong as they make a profit. It's just so sad but catching these people is the only way it can stop, if you buy a bird from them it just gives them money to do it again.
