A gray starling with a contrastingly black head, a small tuft above the bill, a white wing patch, a pale eye, and yellow legs and beak. Juvenile browner than adult, with pale brown head. Groups inhabit open country in lowlands and foothills such as croplands, cultivated areas, and grasslands, frequently feeding on the ground, sometimes around livestock. Native to Sulawesi, introduced in Borneo. Differs from Crested Myna in white vent and from Javan Myna in paler belly; both of those species introduced on Borneo too. Vocalizations include rattles and whistles.
