The Asian Pied Starling
), also known as Pied Myna
, is a species of starling
found in South and Southeast Asia. It is sometimes placed in the "typical myna
" genus Acridotheres
and given that several species now usually placed in Sturnus
indeed seem to belong there (Zuccon et al. 2006), ths may well be correct.
