Five years ago on Bribie Island there were no Common Mynas.  Three years ago
I saw my first one there.  Now, I rarely venture out birding on Bribie
without seeing several of the little darlings.  Sometimes I've seen flocks
of more than twenty.  In today's Courier-Mail (Brisbane's daily rag) Ric
Nattrass (Queensland Nature Search) is quoted as believing they are lower on
the feral species hit list than Cane Toads, Feral Cats and Fire Ants.  So I
guess we'll sit and twiddle our thumbs until SEQ becomes like Sydney and
Cairns, where sometimes all you can hear are the horrible squawks of the
wretched things.
