Adesh Shivkar identifies it as Chestnut tailed Starling (old name grey
headed starling- Sturnus malabaricus). After checking ,I think he is
right!
Brahminy Myna (Sturnus pagodara) is slightly different, it has tuft of
black feathers on the head, that is why it is also known as black
headed Myna-Sibdas ghosh
