SPECIES INFO

The Bare-eyed Myna (Streptocitta albertinae) is a large, long-tailed species of starling in the Sturnidae family. Its common name is a reference to the large patch of dark bare skin around the eyes. Due to its superficial resemblance to a magpie, it has been referred to as the Sula Magpie in the past. It is endemic to forests on the Indonesian islands of Taliabu and Mangole. It is threatened by habitat loss.
