Common Indian Myna (Acridotheres tristis)
As common as Crows here in India, they are one of the most famous birds and have featured in many of our songs too! After having observed them for many years, what I’ve figured is that they will eat almost anything that we throw away. One more striking feature about them is their constant calls, whether they are waking up, foraging, eating or even going back home, which is really annoying after a few minutes of hearing. Normally, you don’t need any help in identifying them, but just in case, check out this list.
1. Blackish head
2. Brown body
3. Yellow patch around the eyes
4. Yellow beak and legs
5. Conspicuous white patch on wings.
Here are some pictures for your visual confirmation.
