The birds seem hungrier than before. They have less fear and more determination, and visit my yard every day. Where did they eat before? Was there so much food lying about before Covid? Perhaps they used to feed on the wastes at restaurants and food courts, places shut down by Covid-19.
Now some eating places have reopened but these black mynahs are used to invading kitchens. They peck at pet food. Shoo bird! Fly away!
