Common Myna (chick)

Acridotheres tristis

Description:

Rich chocolate colour. Bright yellow beak and legs. Touch of white on the wings.

Habitat:

My rooftop terrace.

Notes:

A bold bird with a range of vocalization.This chick is almost fully fledged but still exhibits begging behaviour when the parents are around. If they are busy feeding it looks at them and then, on being ignored starts feeding by itself. As kids we used to say, One for sorrow. Two for joy. Three for letter. Four for a boy and so on...
