“Still in attendance with the group of four mynas.

“I watched, trying to get feeding images, but the birds moved the juvenile further.

“The loud cries of the juvenile attracted a small flock of 7-8 Common Mynas (Acridotheres tristis tristis) to fly in.

“Neighbourhood is now full of mynas. Need to try and document if any other birds feed this juvenile, apart from main two parents (some Common Mynas are in various dates of ‘balding’ offering unique feature to ID individual birds).
