Common Indian Myna

with 8 comments

Common Indian Myna, is a medium sized bird, larger than a House Sparrow with a Black Head & Neck, a Yello Beak and a Yello Patch behing the Eye. These birds are found near cultivation and human habitations.

I have seen these birds so many time in the backyard, but never paid any attention. But this time during my visit to my home town, I was automatically attracted towards this beautiful bird……

While capturing these Mynas in the camera I say another bird (not sure which bird is this), but this one was also equally beautiful…

Few good links on Myna –

  4. Thanks all for your comments. I have read it somewhere that they can talk. Here’s an excerpt from Wiki – “Common Mynas are popular as cage birds for their singing and “speaking” abilities.”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Myna#Behaviour_and_ecology

  6. Hi!In Malaysia this is a protected species of bird but I love to hear them talk. Is this a wild one or caged?

  7. This is not a cages one, I would never like to see one caged and will never do this personally. This not really from wild but this is from the backyard of my house….
