|Common Myna Acridotheres tristis
|Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
The Common Myna is native to central and southern Asia but was introduced to Australia from the 1860s onward. It is found in towns and cities or along highways. Presumably they were introduced as pets given their ability to mimic including mimicking human speech.
|It is a brown bird with a bright yellow bill and bare yellow skin around the eye. It has a black head and throat and yellow legs. Photo 3 shows an immature which looked as though it had just left the nest.|
