Mynas and Starlings

Unfortunately for native birds, introduced Generals and Majors, oh sorry I mean Mynas and Starlings are established in the bushland fringe bordering Mount Majura. Unlike in cities and towns, these birds do not stay in close proximity to people, preferring the treetops. In direct competition with native species, their eradication did not appear to be a hot topic at the recent ACT election.

Out in a world of their own
They'll never come down
