Mainá-de-crista, Crested Myna (Acridotheres cristatellus)

This bird of Asian origin established in Portugal in the 1990s and is one more species to join the list of exotic birds that nest in freedom in Portugal.
Has a very localized distribution, which is
down to a few locations in Lisbon, which however
colonized and settled where breeding populations.I found it near near the fort of S.Julião da Barra where live a small colony.
