    Hi Benoit

    Great! That probably is new!

    I dont imagine it was an escape, as they are not common in captivity and Talaud if pretty far out of anyones way!

    If you have a photo, why not post it here (on the page ‘gallery’ ‘birds of Indonesia’ page there is an upload form). I’m sure people would be interested to see it.

    It would also be worth sending a short note to Kukila or Forktail?

    I have seen a species not in the list. This is the common starling Sturnus vulgaris, seen on Talaud Island in december 2007. I have a picture if requested and of course, I don’t know the origin of the bird but I’m not sure it could be an escaped which be odd anyway.
