[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The pied myna or Asian pied starling (Gracupica contra) is a species of starling found in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. They are usually found in small groups mainly on the plains and low foothills. They are often seen within cities and villages although they are not as bold as the common myna. They produce a range of calls made up of liquid notes. Several slight plumage variations exist in the populations and about five subspecies are named.

Hi Biswarup,finally we are back..eehehe...and what a great shot to celebrate the restart of TN,magnificent capture of this pied myna with the open beak,impressive sharpness,very well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Biswarup
A much more interesting starling to the ones in Australia where they are feral pests brought here from Europe (which is also the case with what we call the Indian Myna - a serious pest). This one is very attractive and very well captured. Good colour and sharpness.

A perfect picture, Biswarup!
