Indian Mynah at Somnathpur

When we were in Somnathpur to visit the ancient Chennakeshav Temple we could spot many common birds. One of them is Indian Mynah.





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

Pretty birds! It sounds smart too if it has adapted to new areas.

I think they are pretty! Never really thought about birds being omnivorous -- but yes, I guess if they eat worms and bugs and also berries and leaves, then they are omniverous. Interesting thought.

This very cute bird is actually very aggressive. It fights for its nesting place with all birds.
