Common Myna or Indian Myna

Acridotheres tristis


All too common in India as the name suggests. See them everywhere. Very clearly identifiable by their brown color and yellow patch around the eye.


Found in urban as well as rural areas.


If you live for some time here, you can have the privilege of watching the Great Wars of Mynas-Crow, just as good as the Wars of Crows-Eagle. :) The team spirit and strategies are interesting!!
