Bird Watch - Common Mynah

Yet another common bird from my backyard, which even my daughter recognizes is a Common Mynah. Much Smaller than a pigeon, this is a familiar well groomed dark brown bird with a black head, bright yellow legs and bill. It has a patch of bare yellow skin round the eyes. The large white patch in the wings in conspicuous in flight.

It is omnivorous found in open and light wooded areas.

  11. Meghana, believe it or not we actually have seen these birds several times here in Florida. Originally, they were pets, caged birds that escaped or (more likely) were let loose by their owners who got tired of them. Apparently now they are breeding in the wild.
