Brahminy Starling (Myna) Pictures and Detail- 
Today, I will be discussing third Myna, which is called Brahminy Starling or Brahminy Myna. Earlier, I wrote about Bank Myna and Common (Indian) Myna. Like these Myna, Brahminy Myna can be commonly seen in many places. Like the other Myna, these are also not much shy of humans and they come close to human beings. 
The scientific name of Brahminy Myna is Sturnia pagodarum and they belong to sterling family. Mostly, we see them in pairs or in a group of birds. Brahminy Myna belongs to the Indian Subcontinent and we can find them in countries like India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and some parts of Pakistan. 



Like the Common Myna, they also like to live close to human habitats and we can easily observe them in cities and villages. In winters these birds visit hot places like Sri Lanka and in summers, they go to cold places like the Himalayas. They are mainly found in the plains or in lower hills.



Brahminy Starling mainly eats seeds, fruits and insects…
