The white-vented myna was brought into Singapore around 1924 (Yap et al.,2002). Mynas do very well in the areas of human habitation such as cities and gardens (King et al.,1975). In urban areas, the food supplies come from human refuse ( Kang, 1989). There has been a dramatic increase of myna populations. In 2000, there were about 168,000 white-vented and 27,000 common myna on the main island of Singapore. More
