Satkosia is arguably the best place in forests of Odisha to sight the Hill Mynas. Especially the Pampasar and Raigoda ranges on the Angul side of the Tiger Reserve is a heaven for this species. Flocks comprising up to 30 individuals have been noticed. Also seen very commonly near the Labangi Forest Guest House.
Author would like to specially thank maverick forest officer, Shri Suvendu Behera (ACF, STR) for helping in the documentation of this specie.
