“I noticed a flock of
Common Mynas (Acridotheres tristis) Javan Mynahs (Acridotheres javanicus) foraging on the seagrass meadows near the water line while I was surveying Pasir Ris on 23rd March 2015 [Note: misidentification corrected]. Every now and then, the birds would peck at the ground. I’m sorry I didn’t manage to photograph what they picked up.
“There were shorebirds and herons foraging on the water line further away from the beach, as usual.
“It appears to me that the mynahs were foraging at areas closer to humans and which the shorebirds shun.”
