Bali Myna

Leucopsar rothschildi

One of the most beautiful birds in the world, with its striking snow white feathers, lacy head crest, and blue eye patch, the Bali myna is also one of the rarest. Only a handful of mynas, highly coveted by collectors, remain in the wild. Breeding in zoos may be its only hope for survival.
