Hi All,

I have a similar story to Colin's. Mynas were first reported on the
Sunshine Coast immediately to the north (say 70km) of Brisbane, about 4
years ago (I remember it was April 1st, and Chris Smith saw the first
pair.). Now there is a steady population, and flocks considered big here
are about 25 birds. I know that is peanuts to people down south, but
that's no comfort to us.
