Asian Pied Starling

Took in a new bird on Monday. The Asian Pied Starling (Gracupica contra). A young bird just changing to adult plumage.
Kept mainly for the following purposes:

1) Good home guard as they will make noise upon seeing people approaching
2) Encourages other birds to sing (suppose to be quite hardworking)
3) Great to teach Hwa Mei to sing
4) Fun factor
5) They are songbirds of their own rights
