Pied Myna or Asian Pied Starling Pied Myna or Asian Pied Starling Pictures and Detail- Today, it's time for another Myna i.e. Pied Myna or Asian Pied Starling. The last Myna, I shared with you were Brahminy Myna , Bank Myna and Common Myna . Like the other Mynas, Pied Myna is also a common bird; however, less common than other Common Myna and Bank Myna. These are very social birds and from the last two years, I am seeing a pair of Pied Myna making nest at the same location. These birds are slightly shy than the common myna and avoid coming close to humans. However, they also live near to humans and we can find them near the human population in villages and cities.  They also love to eat human food leftover by them.
