Birds of Australia

Common Name: Indian or Common Mynah

Scientific Name: Acidotheres tristis

Indian or Common  Mynah

Also spelled as Myna, this introduced species struts around like they own the place and are members of the Starling family. They are very intelligent and know just how far to push their luck. I saw a TV documentary about them where the journalist had a blind cat and the Indian Mynahs would come in the cat door and steal dry food right beside the cat. The Entrance, NSW Nov 2012.
