Is the issue that "Mynas are tolerant of small birds like Willy Wagtails,
Silvereyes and Superb Fairy-wrens etc and can live with them OK". Or is it
that small birds like ....are tolerant of Mynas (or not).

Certainly the evidence over 21 years from COG's GBS as in my 21 Year book on
the survey is that all the large parrots (escept Gang-gang Cockatoo which
has gone up and down with a slight increase) have allincreased their
abundances drastictly during the time the Myna has arrived and then
increased in abundance. The Eastern Rosella has not changed, the Red-rumped
Parrot has decreased drastically and the Common Starling has also decreased
