Russell W tells me that Indian Mynas are in Singapore in a big way, and Gil
Langfield asks me whether what I saw at the Airport wasn't a group of Javan
or White-vented Mynas (Acridotheres javanicus), another introduction to

were, and as this species is darker than the Jungle Myna, this could
explain my initial confusion (ie they look more like Indian Mynas than
Jungle Mynas do).
