Thanks for all the views, comments, votes and user awards to my previous upload, which is very very encouraging.

Today's upload is that of a bird called " Myna ".
The bird Myna (Acridotheres tristis) also sometimes known as "Indian Myna” is a member of the family Sturnidae (starlings and mynas) native to Asia. An omnivorous open woodland bird with a strong territorial instinct, the Myna has adapted extremely well to urban environments.
The Common Myna is an important motif in Indian culture and appears both in Sanskrit and Prakrit literature. "Myna" is derived from the Hindi language mainā which itself is derived from Sanskrit madanā.
The Common Myna is readily identified by the brown body, black hooded head and the bare yellow patch behind the eye. The bill and legs are bright yellow. There is a white patch on the outer primaries and the wing lining on the underside is white. The sexes are similar and birds are usually seen in pairs.

Very nice couple of shots - can't choose between them and think they go very well together to get a balanced image of the bird.

Hi Uma two beautiful shots, over here some people keep Myna birds as cage birds, and they are outstanding talkers
