Hi all, 
       An unusal observation of mine last Thursday 13 August. A white common
mynah at Tolga on the Atherton Tablelands.  It was with a normal friend
dodging cars whilst feeding on the road in the main street.  I could'nt
believe my eyes as having been raised in Victoria in mynah territory I have
seen 'millions' of these birds. I pulled over and watched it for 10 mins.
It was mature and was a creamy white with the yellow around the eye.

My question is how many others exist along the east coast, and what does it

I also saw a pair of Fernwrens (tossing leaves) near Ravenshoe that morning,
so an interesting morning.

Cheers Stan
