Asian Pied Starling

Gracupica contra Linnaeus, 1758

The Pied Myna or Asian Pied Starling (Sturnus 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. Source: Wikipedia
