Indian Myna [मैना]

On a unique journey to a ghostly place named Bhangadh, I found this beauty near a small hand pump. No no, it's not a diversion; I'll publish a post on Bhangadh very soon, but could not resist to showcase the beauty of the natural creation first. Enjoy the photos of the Indian Myna [AKA Mynah, Common Myna, Acridotheres Tristis, मैना]. It's a member of the Starling family of birds.

  5. I have read of the Myna bird. In fact a shop owner who went out of business had a black one that he said was a Myna bird and it was all black and talked. We heard it talk and it was allowed to fly around his shop.

  8. Some people don't know, but Mynas can be taught to speak. They are among the cleverest of birds...

  12. This is an excellent picture...they are talkers, these birds, I've heard. I remember a tree, outside what was then the Kahala Hilton in Honolulu. The birds would return at sunset, filling the tree and jabbering nonstop. God forbid, you walked underneath!
