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.
