Bird Families of the World

Bank Myna

Starlings are found in Africa and Asia, and most people are surprised by their tremendous variety. On average mynas are heavier and stockier than starlings, but the huge variation in body proportions in this family blurs the distinction.

The family is Sturnidae

There are 123 species placed in 35 genera.

So far I have photographed 46 different species. In case I photographed the male and the female I have added a photograph of both.

See below the genera of which I photographed at least two specie. At the end, I have placed "Various genera".  Here you will find a collection of genera with only one species photographed. To make it easier you can find the genus name combined with the species name (visible when displaying the photograph)
