Common Hill Myna, Gracula religiosa, also known as the Talking Myna or Common Grackle. The popularity of the Common Hill Myna as a cage bird, because of its ability to mimic human speech, has led to a decline in the numbers of wild birds, particularly in Thailand. This member of the Starling family is distinguished by its glossy black plumage that contrasts with bright yellow wattles and an orange bill.
