They Are known As The Common Mynas

Posted Tuesday 28th December 2010 at 22:52 by Francis Duggan
They are known as the common mynas because in their range they are a common sight
Dark brown birds not ugly to look at they look pretty in the sunlight
Often seen in towns and cities and suburbs their numbers seem to multiply
They surely are Nature's survivors that much of them none can deny
Familiar in their range to many by their appearance and scratchy song
Once seen and heard quite unmistakeable one never ought to get them wrong
Looked upon as a pest by many and nicknamed the cane toads of the air
Some of the judgements we make on some of Nature's creatures to say the least not always fair
They were introduced to Australia from tropical cities in Asia far away
But as much at home in Australian towns and cities as they are in Delhi or Bombay
'Tis said by some they displace the native birds though us people we too are that way
We are the main cause of extinction despite what some may think or say
They are known as the common mynas and they live as a big family
And they have their wars and disagreements not unlike us would you agree?
