Mynah Bird

Angel the mynah bird is definitely NOT an Angel.  Originally one of a pair they were used for hunting and Sangha have a special licence to be able to keep them. They were brought to Sangha by a lady who was no longer trapping and needed a safe secure environment for the birds to live but sadly one died so Angel is now on her own.

About Mynah Birds: They belong to an invading species which means they enter different environments, kill other birds and take over their nest and territories.  They are aggressive in nature and can become a plague. Governments often hire people with these birds to trap their own species, they have a special call which entices other birds into traps.  Once trapped they are disposed of.

What they eat: The general diet for these territorial birds is made up of bugs, bug larvae, snails, grains, seeds, worms and fruits.
