I suggest trying to feed it. Once you
have it accepting food you have a chance of trapping it. I have
a spring operated flipover net trap that I got for cunning mynas that I think
would work. He is welcome to borrow it for the purpose.
I borrowed one of these net traps to catch the
remaining cunning mynas at my place before I decided to invest in
one. It worked quite well. I haven't seen a myna here (Aranda)
in about 18months.
I'll give him a ring but I'm putting this on the
COG list as others may be interested in this trap.
