These Mynas have a brick red bare skin behind the eye . It is greyer on the underside and in this and in the presence of a slight tuft of feathers bears some resemblance to the Jungle Myna. The name is derived from their habit of nesting almost exclusively in the earthen banks of rivers where they excavate holes and breed in large colonies.

Nice capture... These Mynas are very brave and reach very close to Human civil areas. I find them walking between my steps during my journey in North India.
