This bird is the most popular pet bird in Sabah coz of its ability to mimic human voice. Hill Myna is very smart and adorable but unfortunately its population in the wild is declining. If you have a Hill Myna that can “talk” very well, it will become the thief’s target very soon.
Spotted in old shoplot in Kuala Penyu. The shop owners never remove their nest. Instead, they think it is a lucky sign. The shop that got the most bird nest also got the most business. The house swift also seems to be able to recognise individual. When I walk around as a stranger, they become nervous and make noise.
