Bird that talks too much behind bars! November 12, 2007Posted by asianpixmen in Fauna/Animals, Malaysia, Nature, Places.
There’s a place in town that has several pet shops. Recently, as I was walking pass one, a loud whistle was heard overhead. I was familiar with this sound because I have seen this Mynah that loves to whistle at passers-by.
Some young women have thought that they were being whistled at by some uncouth youths. No worries. It’s this bird.
However, on this day, the Mynah started with loud whistles and followed it up with a very audible “koong hei fatt choy!” I stopped dead in my tracks.
Hey, I thought, we have just done with Deepavali and this bird is already ushering in the Chinese New Year. Perhaps its owner would do well to teach the Mynah how to say “Merry Christmas”.
