Somehow I don’t think I’ll mention “Common Myna” on this chat line again. In fact may consider taking a 10 year sabbatical.
But before I pack my bags, brothers and sisters, consider the following:
Peri: in Persian mythology, a beautiful supernatural being descended from the fallen angels.
And you’ll come across them every day in West Belconnen particularly in Periurban woodland Holt backyards.

Thanks for picking this up Geoffrey. There is no periurban woodland in backyards. Periurban woodland is around the suburbs and woodland trees in backyards are remnants of former woodland areas. I should have inserted ‘and’ between periurban and Holt to read ‘Common Mynas in periurban woodland and Holt backyard’
I am interested in the concept of a ‘periurban woodland Holt backyard’. Before I devote time to exploring it, may I eliminate the possibility that John Layton’s title “Common Mynas in Holt backyard” later had the “periurban woodland” inserted inadvertently, without the definite intention either of directing discussion to one particular kind of Holt backyard, of the various kinds of backyard that might exist in that suburb, or of informing, or reminding, the subscriber that all Holt backyards are, perhaps relevantly, of the periurban woodland variety?
