Crested Myna (Acridotheres Cristatellus)

In the genus Acridotheres, the crested myna (Acridotheres cristatellus), also known as the Chinese starling, is a starling species endemic to southeast China and Indochina. It is named after the tuft of feathers which resembles a crest on its forehead.

In open spaces near urban and agricultural areas, the crested myna is usually found. It is a common cage bird and has, as a result, been mistakenly released beyond its normal range in a few locations.

The crested myna is, like many starlings, omnivorous. A variety of foods, including worms, grubs, nuts, fruit, and even trash, can be consumed. As it feeds on insects and does not attack crops, it is a highly useful bird to farmers.
