A 'greedy' myna pouches insect prey

A common myna sits with multiple termites sticking out of its beak. The photos were taken on the outskirts of Mysore district, Karnataka state, India, by Manthan Venkatesh Prasad after watching the bird for over an hour. As Manthan explains, the insects will come out from their nests and the birds will notice that and catch their prey. Mynas are a group of passerine birds native to southern Asia.
