Javan Myna

P1450939
Javan Myna (Acridotheres javanicus)
Tampines, 13th June 2010

This was one of six dead Javan mynas that I’d found within a small area at the void deck of my block. I suspect that this was a localised case of poisoning, although whether it was deliberate culling of mynas or collateral damage from culling of feral pigeons (Columba livia), I do not know.
