Give myna the bird (their headline, not mine!)

The Australian is reporting that a member of Parliament from north Queensland had recommended that the Indian myna bird (Acridotheres tristis) should be declared a noxious pest by the government. State government is hesitating, looking for evidence that there is a proven method of eradicating the introduced birds, before time and resources are committed. Scientific studies of management techniques will continue.
