[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.

Despite steel perch, this is a good image of this Pied Mynah, Biswarup.
It is the colours on it that make it distinctly different from the Common Mynah.
I saw a couple of them today but they were too far away for my equipment.
