Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Jet-black bird with flashing white wing patches and a small, bristly crest just above base of yellow bill. Across much of its range, found in farms, parks, and cities, nesting in buildings and highway signs and foraging in small flocks on median strips and in garbage dumps. The only black myna throughout most of its natural range, but now rare and local on Taiwan. Occasionally mixes with other starlings while roosting and feeding.
