Re: The Thai is back!

That's an interesting shot, and mynas do have a certain charm, but I do hope it's the only one - this is is a notoriously destructive invasive species that can have a serious impact on local native bird populations. They are already established in southern Europe, and many places worldwide where they should not occur. Here's a clip from an EU Invasive Species Risk Assessment for this bird: -

"This species is likely to establish and spread in the Mediterranean region and possibly other regions in the EU if no action is taken. In its introduced range, it has a major impact on biodiversity and related ecosystem services, including additional impacts on the economy and human health, and provides no benefits. Although confidence in the conclusion is limited due to transferability of data, available evidence suggest that this species poses a serious risk to biodiversity in the EU."
