"The Indian Myna (Acridotheres tristis), native to Asia and India, was first introduced into Australia (Melbourne) in 1862 in an attempt to control pests in market gardens. Further releases occurred in Queensland in 1883 in an attempt to control insect pests in cane fields." - Wetland Care Australia - Projects Archive: Indian Myna Control Project

Resident in Short Street, Leichhardt backyard for over a week now but it had to move one day because a local cat spotted it. - Vera-ann Hannaford, 6 March 2013.

1The terms "resident", "occasional" , "frequent visitor" refer to the original Survey Site and Period. This list builds on information gathered in a Survey for the Birds Australia National Atlas and Cumberland Atlas (which contributes to the National Atlas but records more information). The Survey was of the 2 hectare site which included the Federal Park Wetlands, and was bounded by Johnston Creek Canal, the Crescent, and [light rail] overpass on Rozelle Bay. The site was surveyed for 20 minutes each survey period, originally every season, but then every month over a few years before 2006.
