Rare escaped bird on the loose in Egerton

The Bolton News: A mynah bird like the one that escaped A mynah bird like the one that escaped

A RARE bird has reportedly flown the nest in Egerton — and has sparked fears it may not survive the cold weather.

An Indian mynah bird, pictured, has been seen in gardens in the northern outskirts of Egerton for the past eight weeks.

The bird may have escaped from a nearby house or an aviary.

A member of the starling family and native to Asia, it is reportedly coping well with current conditions and is feeding well on seeds and apples.

But with temperatures set to plummet over the coming weeks, concerns have been raised for the bird’s welfare.

If anyone owns this bird or has information on where it may have come from, please contact The Bolton News on 01204 537270 or e-mail newsdesk@theboltonnews.co.uk

Hopefully the bird will be found - it may not actually be from a local house or aviary as they can fly some distance. I assume that the owner is worried because they are clever mimicking birds and can be good company for the elderly.
