The tropical, Asian-native mynah bird is a medium-sized bird with a short tail and prominent beak. You can often identify them from their innovative songs that consist of squeaks, whistles, and imitated sound – they're quite noisy! Mynah birds eat fruit and invertebrates, cause damage to crops, and are quite aggressive with other small animals, from squirrels to other birds. They will damage the eggs and harm the babies of other birds, too. They can spread diseases to both humans and animals, and create problems for businesses.
For those of us who live here in the state of Hawaii, we know all-too-well what a mynah bird is. It is an aggressive, highly invasive, and very smart, territorial bird with a brown body, black hooded head, and bare yellow patch behind its eyes. Its beak and legs are also yellow. And, these birds can be found hanging out in pairs, feeding on things such as fruit, grains, seeds, insects, spiders, crustaceans and small reptiles.
