Hello all

Yesterday morning I was at Tinchi Tamba Wetlands (northside of Brisbane, Queensland) with an American visitor when a bird flew into a tree about 30 metres away. It was partly obscured by foliage and as I focused on it, a blue dart swooped from above hitting the bird which plummeted about 15 metres to the ground. We walked over and eventually found a now very dead Common Myna in some dense cockspur understorey. The Sacred Kingfisher sat not far away eyeing us off.

Could this this be the solution for Common Myna control?
