during last 3 to 4 yrs common mynahs have become well established in Orara 
Valley near Grafton and
occupy open grazing country.  They have been observed taking over nest hollows 
in old growth trees.
Reports are that the trial of the traps shows resistance by trhe birds and is 
of limited value. Any
information on this and other control methods.  Shooting has been tried and 
discarded as ineffective and
only makes the birds wary.

On distribution, I have seen mynahs feeding on spilt grain on the roadside at 
Malu between Oakey and
Dalby. I don,t know the Qld distribution.
