Common Mynah

The Common Mynah, native to South Asia, was introduced to Hawaii in 1865 to control an infestation of army worms. Some types of mynah can learn to imitate the human voice as well as calls of other birds and animals. The Common Mynah is prolific in Honolulu although relatively unappreciated by local residents as is evident by its Hawaiian names: piha `ekelo (full of voice) and manu`aipilau (trash-eating bird).
