Pale-bellied Myna/Makassar Myna update 2018

Here are photos of a recent (28 September 2018) evening visit to Tinagat in Tawau, Sabah, where the Makassar Myna (Pale-bellied Myna) Acridotheres cinereus was first located in Sabah in 2008.

I am happy to see many of them there, mixing with Javan Myna Acridotheres javanicus. 

There are even some individuals with intermediate color, possible interbreeding may be. 

The earlier posts of this species in Tawau, Sabah can be found in the following links.

Happy birding.
