myna



myna is a name of a person but also of a bird. mynas are not a natural group;1 instead, the term myna is used for any starling in the indian subcontinent, regardless of their relationships. this range was colonized twice during the evolution of starlings, first by rather ancestral starlings related to the coleto and aplonis lineages, and millions of years later by birds related to the common starling and wattled starling’s ancestors. these two groups of mynas can be distinguished in the more terrestrial adaptions of the latter, which usually also have less glossy plumage except on the heads and longer tails. the bali myna which is nearly extinct in the wild is highly distinctive.
“myna” is derived from the hindi language mainā which itself is derived from sanskrit madanā.
