The Common Myna is found on all the main islands of Hawaii. It was introduced from India in 1865 to control insect pests. The Myna is related to the European Starling. Mynas have been introduced in many parts of the world and have become real pests in some of those places. In the year 2000 they were included on a list of the world’s 100 worst invasive species. They were one of only three bird species on this list; the rest were mammals, insects, etc.
