Myna Birds

The Indian Myna is an introduced species that threatens the habitat or our native birds and wildlife.

Originally introduced by humans into Melbourne from Southeast Asia back in 1862 they quickly established themselves. In 1883 they were taken up to Northern Queensland, ostensibly to combat insects in the cane fields! A feral bird and now also a serious pest they are found in most cities and towns along the east coast of Australia in some areas in plague proportions.

The Indian Myna is brown with a black head. It has a yellow bill, legs and bare eye skin. In flight it shows large white wing patches. It is a member of the starling family and is also known as the Common Myna or Indian Mynah.
