ABSTRACT
Myna, or Mynah, an Asiatic starling. Some species have deep, masculine voices and are considered the most talented of all talking birds. Mynas are medium-sized birds usually with black or brown plumage, white wing patches, and yellow or orange feet and bills. They travel in flocks, and feed on grain, fruit, insects, and larvae. Two clutches of four or five bluish eggs are laid each year in a nest built in a hole in a tree or a crevice of a building.
