Actually, I have met a dedicated birder living in sothern QLD who has
had great success with shooting as a control method.  He found that
the mynahs kept recolonising in waves but would eventually cease
recolonising.  I believe he also removed mynah eggs from nests in his
area where possible.  Unfortunately, shooting obviously can't be used
in any residential areas due to safety issues.
