 Bank myna (Acridotheres ginginianus) Picture and Detail 


As you go deep into the world of birds, then you witness a great variety of birds. I never thought earlier that so many kinds of Myna live around us. Around the world, we can find two dozen myna. The first myna, I shared with you was Common Myna and now, I am going to share Bank Myna and which is also called Sharak in Punjabi. 

Initially, I thought that it is a jungle Myna because of its resemblance to it; however, on closer look, I found that there is a difference in the colour of the bleak skin around its eye. In some studies, I found that It is bank myna. The scientific name of this myna is Acridotheres ginginianus.

 Like the Common Myna, Bank Myna also doesn't fear much from humans and therefore, you get a nice chance to take its pictures. The brick-red colour of its bleak skin around its eyes is the main indicator that it is Bank Myna. Also, there is no white patch on the wings of Bank Myna as we see in the Common Myna.

 Bank Myna can be commonly seen in Northern and Central India. They mainly make their nest near or on the river bank, which gives them the name of Bank Myna. They can be found near the river banks in big colonies or groups. Both sexes are similar in look.

 Bank Myna mainly lives around the open water source and we can find them in cities and near human population. These birds breed and roost in colonies. They love to eat human leftovers in markets and in dumps. They mainly eat grains, insects and fruits.

Bank Myna makes its nest from April to July near the river banks. They give blue or greenish-blue eggs. This myna is only found in the Indian subcontinent. I like my encounter with Bank Myna, and I am happy that I got a chance to capture pictures of one more myna.
