Chestnut-tailed Starling

Sturnia malabarica (Gmelin, JF, 1789)

The Chestnut-tailed Starling or Grey-headed Myna (Sturnia malabarica ) is a member of the starling family of perching birds. It is a resident or partially migratory species found in wooded habitats in India and Southeast Asia. The species name is after the distribution of a former subspecies in the Malabar region. This resident population has a white head and is often treated as a full species, the Malabar Starling (Sturnia blythii). Source: Wikipedia
