For a few mornings in July 2016 I was interrupted during my breakfast by the loud and sharp cries of Javan Mynas (Acridotheres javanicus) quarreling in my back neighbour’s compound. The birds were flying to and fro between the slender palms, chasing each other. Most times they ended on the ground, out of my sight. The noise they generated was loud and sharp, lasting a few seconds to a minute or so – see video below.
