“The common hill myna is often detected by its loud, shrill, descending whistles followed by other calls.
It is most vocal at dawn and dusk, when it is found in small groups in forest clearings high in the canopy.
This myna is almost entirely arboreal, moving in large, noisy groups of half a dozen or so, in tree-tops at the edge of the forest. It hops sideways along the branch, unlike the characteristic jaunty walk of other mynas.
Like most starlings, the hill myna is fairly omnivorous, eating fruit, nectar and insects.”
