Micronesian Starling

The Micronesian Starling (Aplonis opaca) is found in Micronesia (northwest of the Philippines), Northern Mariana Islands (between Hawaii and the Philippines), and Palau (an island nation in the Pacific Ocean, east of the Philippines).

They feed on fruits, seeds, the occasional insect and the eggs of seabirds. These bold birds will follow humans in seabird colonies to take the eggs of seabirds flushed by them.
