Common Hill Myna

Hello,

I am sharing another Florida bird  and a new lifer for me. It is the Common Hill Myna or Mynah bird seen at the Circle B Bar Reserve. This was an easy bird to spot in a tree right near the parking lot.


The Common Hill Myna is a native species in Asia, they were first sighted in Florida back in 1950.


They compete with native species for the nesting cavities. They can eat lizards, fruits, berries and seeds.



Finding lifers on the East Coast is becoming difficult unless they are rare birds and sightings. LOL, I think I may have to move to the west coast and find new birds.  I may have 4  new lifers from the last 5 months in Florida.


Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.

Saturday's Critters #171

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

I accidentally deleted the first group of links this morning. Sorry, I did not remember all bloggers that have already linked. 

I am sharing some birds and critters from the Circle B Reserve. Here is a pretty shot of the Great Blue Heron.

A Green Heron is one of the common herons at the Circle B, sometimes we saw as many as 4-5 Green Herons during our walk.
