|Acridotheres tristis||Order: Passeriformes||Family: Sturnidae (Starlings)|
This relative of the European Starling is native to Asia but has become one of the most rapidly-spreading invasive species in the world. It is exceptionally aggressive in appropriating nest sites from other birds, often defending both a nest site and roost site, and has become an extremely serious pest in Australia where it can steal nests from birds as large as galahs. It feeds voraciously on ripening fruits so is also considered an agricultural pest.
In the United States, it’s common in Hawaii and urban areas of south Florida.
