Only after a while I’ve realized that there were two different Mynas around. The Common Myna was the first bird I saw in Nepal – at the airport in Kathmandu. The Jungle Myna was probably around all the time, but only when I looked at them with the binoculars I saw that they are missing that yellow part around the eyes.
