The Common Myna was introduced to South Africa by Indian immigrants in 1888. In the following 202 years they have established a large breeding population all the way from the Kwazulu Natal coast (they were introduce in Durban) up to the border with Zimbabwe. They are considered a pest by many South Africans because of their tendency to chase the native birds.
