Ceylon Hill Mynah (Salalihinihya)

The Ceylon Hill Mynah is distinguished from the Common Hill Mynah by its somewhat larger size, in having only two small wattles on the nape and black at the base of the orange-red beak. Its black plumage has a more purple sheen. The sexes are alike except in iris colour. Evidence seems to point that it is the male bird’s iris that is brown while that of the female is white.
