Rothschild’s Mynah With its blue bare skin around the eyes and black wing tips and tail ends, the Rothschild`s mynah is of little resemblance to the black European starling, its closest European relative. Native to the Indonesian island of Bali, this bird is one of the rarest on Earth. In 2001, the endemic wild population consisted of just 6 birds following the destruction of habitat, poaching and illegal trade.
