Trapping Mynas - page 1 / 5

Mynas and starlings are highly intelligent and wary birds with keen eyesight and good communication.
Mynas and Starlings learn quickly to avoid danger through their own experience and by watching and listening to others of their kind.
The more they are hassled the more wary they become and the harder to catch - if you want to trap mynas and starlings don’t let them know your intentions.
Don’t let them see you watching them – observe only out of the corners of your eyes.
Don’t approach traps during daylight hours unless you absolutely need to.
