Committee's view
Background
This single Rosy Starling was a very tame individual, foraging alongside, among other Mynas, an adult Brahminy Starling that was present since May The fact full adults of these two very rare species were walking side by side early in the season, is rather dubious. This individual (and the associated Brahminy Starling) was likely an escapee.
Verdict Accepted / Escapee (Verifiable)
