Jalak Bali Bird

Jalak Bali bird (Leucopsar rothschildi) is a type of warbler-sized, approximately 25cm long, from the tribe Sturnidae. White warbler is a species endemic to Indonesia that can only be found in the western part of Bali island. This bird is also the only species endemic to the island of Bali which still remains after the Bali tiger declared extinct. Since 1991, animals in the category "critical" (Critically Endangered) in the IUCN Redlist and almost extinct in its natural habitat was crowned as the fauna of identity (the mascot) province of Bali.

Jalak Bali bird has special characteristics, which have white fur all over his body except the tip of the tail and wings are black. Jalak Bali bird's eyes dark brown, the area around the eyelids are not hairy with dark blue, Jalak Bali bird has a beautiful crest, both sexes males and females, Jalak Bali has legs blue-gray with 4 fingers (1 to 3 to the rear and front), with a long pointy part 2-5 cm, with a distinctive form in which the elevation at the top there is a flattened upright. Beak color blackish gray with a yellow tip brownish.

Jalak Bali bird including wildlife laws. To avoid extinction, have established breeding center one of which was in Buleleng, Bali since 1995. In addition, most zoos around the world also run the Jalak Bali breeding program. But still appear a wondering in my heart; possible for the next few years we will only see behind the Jalak Bali in a zoo cage. One thing that is ironic, seeing a mascot to be confined in an iron cage.
