Mountain Starling

Aplonis santovestris Harrisson & Marshall, 1937

The Mountain Starling, Vanuatu Starling, Santo Mountain Starling or Santo Starling (Aplonis santovestris) is a species of starling in the Sturnidae family. It is endemic to the island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. It is restricted to cloud forest forest on that island. The species was seldom seen in the 20th century and was at one point feared extinct, although a 1991 expedition managed to find a population high in the mountains. Source: Wikipedia
