Just joined the myna fb group and browsed the page. I don't get many in my small backyard but see them regularly at the Florey shops. Not sure I'm up to trapping and disposing of ferals (I'm a widow with no family in Canberra to help) but if I see more in my garden I might give it a try if someone could help me.

Yes. Bill Handke gave another detailed update about this to the COG meeting 15 January. With an impassioned plea for ongoing or increased involvement. So those in Florey & Nicholls please get involved……….. CIMAG


If I had that many I would but I now only get the flyovers by usually only 2 of them.

Many IMs around Florey. Does anyone know if they are still being euthanized?

32 Indian Mynas were on my front lawn when I got home this afternoon. I sat in the car and counted them. They seem to be doing alright in the conditions.
