Hi Jude,


The correct name is Common Myna, a member of the Starling family. It is often mistakenly called the Indian Myna but occurs widely throughout Asia. The name “miner” is associated with a group of birds that belong to the honeyeater family, represented locally by the Noisy Miner.


Sorry, I can’t help you with a trap.

Dear All,


However we spell them, I'd love to send them to birdie heaven and take some pressure off my little birds.  I have had no luck from the miner disposal group, so, if anyone has a trap they would be willing to sell, rent, lend, lease, whatever, I would love to know. 


Please take pity on all my wrens, finches and even grey shrike thrush who is harried,


Jude Hopwood.
