Sexes are alike and unlikely to be confused with other birds in the region.
The Common Myna is readily identified by the brown body, black hooded head and the bare yellow patch behind the eye. The bill and legs are bright yellow.
There is a white patch on the outer primaries and the wing lining on the underside is white.
The calls includes croaks, squawks, chirps, clicks, whistles and 'growls', and the bird often fluffs its feathers and bobs its head in singing. The Common Myna screeches warnings to its mate or other birds in cases of predators in proximity or when it is about to take off flying.
