Saw this bunch having a good old scrap out of the spare bedroom window. They made enough racket to actually wake me up – no mean feat as Laura will tell you!
These are Javan Myna birds, not the Hill Mynas that can imitate human voices, and are *everywhere* in Singapore. In fact Wikipedia has it that one is allowed to kill these birds legally. Although considered a pest by many, in fact I’ve heard them referred to as “the garbage bird” I find them much more pleasant than London’s equivalent.
