Birds I grew up with – Common Myna
I am not sure if all my friends in India will agree with this – these days, there seems to be far less number of the common birds that we grew up with. I remember seeing a lot of sparrows (chorui pakhi), crows (kaak) and common mynas (salikh) everyday in those days. I barely see any these days.
This trip, so far I have spotted a common myna and a crow from the balcony of my dad’s house…
This is the common myna.
