Birds In Neighbourhood - 3

I am the few of the fortunate who occasionally get to see few birds of different variety around my house in Bangalore. I have captured few of them in my camera and here they are. One such beautiful bird is Indian Mynah or  Common Mynah



This is an omnivorous woodland bird with a strong territorial instinct. It has adapted extremely well to urban environments.



It has brown body, black hooded head and the bare yellow patch behind the eye. The bill and legs are bright yellow. There is a white patch on the outer primaries and the wing lining on the underside is white.

The are very adaptable. Two species have pretty well established themselves in Florida. Terribly noisy as a cage bird-- that is probably the reason so many "escaped" from captivity.

These very cheeky birds we also have in Australia. They certainly are great scavengers.

Spotting a pair of Mynahs is considered good luck! :) Not a single Mynah though!
