Common Myna or Indian Myna

Acridotheres tristis

Description:

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.

Habitat:

Found in urban as well as rural areas.

Notes:

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!!
