The Enggano Myna or Enggano Hill Myna (Gracula enganensis) is a member of the starling family. It is an endemic resident of Enggano Island, off southwest Sumatra.

Description

The Enggano Myna is stocky with mainly black plumage. It has bright orange-yellow patches of naked skin and fleshy yellow wattles on the side of its head and nape. At about 27 cm length, it is somewhat smaller than the Indian Hill Myna.

It has overall turquoise-glossed black plumage, purple-tinged on the head and neck. There are large white wing patches which are obvious in flight. The thick bill and strong legs are bright yellow.

Behaviour

The bird is arboreal, and is found mainly along forest edges. Like most starlings, the Enggano Myna is fairly omnivorous, eating fruit, nectar and insects.
