In 2016, the Grey-rumped Myna ,sometimes called the Bali Staring was listed as critically endangered .
Endemic to Bali this passerine or perching birds with three toes forward and one back features a hackled erectile crest .
Since 1979, the Grey-rumped Myna has been under Indonesian law protection due to poaching for the cage-bird trade.
The high priced cage-bird capture and trade is the principle cause of the severe decline in the wild .
However another threat since its decline in the wild is genetic introgression, as captive-breeding is producing most of the Grey-rumped Mynas still being sold.
