Good morning All
The story of the Brown Goshawk and the Common/Indian Myna reminded me of an episode in Pietermaritzburg in South Africa. I watched an African Goshawk chase a flock of Indian Mynas into a macadamia tree and then crash in after them, thereby flushing them out in a panic allowing her to pick off one. While I watched her plucking it I had the innocent thought:
"I hope she likes curry" , and promptly collapsed laughing at myself.
There was a fellow in the area who was a falconer and had trained his Black Sparrowhawk to exclusively take Indian Mynas - it reduced the local population substancially.
