  Jungle Myna

 

 PREVIOUS BIRD NEXT BIRD Nepal

A Jungle Myna, spotted on a house rooftop in Pokhara. It is about 23 centimeters tall and has a grey plumage, blackish head, wings and upper-tail. It is somewhat similar to the Bank Myna (fig.), but lacks the bare eye-patches.

 

The under-tail is white, and in flight, the underwings display large white patches. Like the White-vented Myna (fig.), it has a crest on the forehead, but a much smaller one, and the bill and legs are yellowish-orange, as are the irises. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
