Can you give references for myna? I'm always interested to see data on myna effects in NZ. NZBO mentions them taking out starlings, and I, like many others I'm sure, have seen that. No doubt they prey on some small native fauna, but data on their effects on populations of native species (birds, reptiles, or anything) would be very interesting.
