very similar to Indian Myna.
We school girls had a rhyme for them
One for sorrow ,
Two for joy,
three for letter ,
four for toy.
five for silver ,
six for gold,
seven for a secret that is never to be told.
there are two in this picture!!!!
Hope fully they will bring you a lot of joy!

Thanks a lot MikeWolstencroft!!

Very common in Singapore, and very entertaining. When it's really hot they goose step around with their beaks open. One of my favorite local birds.
