Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS submitted an image of a leucistic adult myna photographed by Colin Mitchell. The bird was spotted on the wall at the carpark entrance to the condominium at Mount Kiara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in March 2012. The equipment used was a Panasonic DMC-ZS10 point-and-shoot camera.
According to Colin, “It ignored me in the car while I took a photo through the drivers window. The moment I opened the window it scooted!”
Amar believes that the bird is possibly a Javan Myna (Acridotheres javanicus) in view of the fact that they have overrun Kuala Lumpur. Small possibility of a Jungle Myna (A. fuscus).”
