Hello Ike,
Lovely capture of this bird against the colourful background of the blooming jacaranda.
Very pleasing picture to the eye , and I think the bird thought the same :-)
Kindest refards.

Default To maloutim: Abouit Mayna birds

Bonsoir MarieLouise,
Lately it became apparat the Mayna birds were an invading specie, driving out older birds specie's from Israel - some were completely disappeared since.
Not such a nice bird, unfortunately.
Thanks for passing by,

Indeed, invading species are no good for the environment. However was the maina introduced to Israel or did they just fly into the country ? It's pretty easy for birds :-)
Jacarandas are not natural trees to Israel either are they. I saw them in South Africa, and was told, despite their beauty, they were bad for the environment, they pump too much water off the soil.
Also, I think the disappearance of some bird species are not only due to invading others, but as well to our modern ways of life. Pesticides, Insecticides, decreasing of their natural environment.....:-(
Thanks for sharing.
