  Myna - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The mynas (also spelled mynahs) are part of the family Sturnidae, along with the starlings and oxpeckers.
This is a group of passerine birds which occur naturally only in eastern Asia, although several species have been introduced to North America and New Zealand, and the Common Myna to south-eastern Australia, where it is regarded as a pest species.
Their flight is strong and direct, and they are gregarious.

 The Common Myna at Midway Atoll
Pyle (1982) estimated 200 mynas during his stay in the autumn of 1982, and recorded a high count of 128 individuals at the landfill dump.
On Oahu, Eddinger (1967:2) remarked, "The myna is a wary bird, and although man may be able to check its increase, extermination is practically impossible." Compared to mynas on Oahu, Midway's population is relatively small, less dispersed, and highly accessible.
It is unlikely that the beneficial aspects of myna presence at Midway outweigh their negative impacts, and continued expansion of the population may pose greater risk of irreversible damage.

Mynas are distinctive, because unlike most birds, they move with a jaunty walk rather than hop.

Myna traps are being tested throughout Canberra, as well as the NSW central coast, Coffs Harbour, and Taronga Zoo in Sydney, where mynas are vying with pigeons for the title of most annoying bird.

 Environment ACT - Indian Myna Birds   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The Indian Myna was introduced to the local region (Canberra) in 1968 where they have shown a distinct liking for urban backyards and woodland nature reserves.
Indian Mynas are very aggressive and intelligent birds that are known to evict native birds; including parrots, kookaburras and peewees from their nests, dump out their eggs and chase them away from their roosting areas.
The results of this trial suggested that, whilst trapping can have some impact on Myna numbers in the vicinity of traps, it may not be a practical method to eradicate or achieve a long-term reduction in Myna numbers on a broad-scale across Canberra.
