For the interest of the list the following is a website encouraging people
to record the introduced Common (Indian) Mynahs (Acridotheres tristis)
across the country.

The survey is run by Dr Chris Tideman of the Australian National University
in Canberra and the CSIRO Double Helix Science Club.  Chris hopes the
survey will help determine whether the "flying cane toad" needs to be
controlled and if their nests need to be relocated from particular areas.
He also aims to find out where Common Mynahs live, how many there are and
where they sleep.  I urge all those people living on the fringes of cities
and towns and further to have a look at this site and consider getting

This information was sourced from the spring 1998 issue of Wildlife
Australia magazine produced by the Queensland Museum.
