Carpooling Mynas


In the swamps of East India where the One-horned Rhinoceros roams, Jungle Mynas act as the Oxpecker's Indian counterparts, following rhinoceroses, dining on the ectoparasites that dwell on their hide. Cattle Egrets too, keep close company, snapping up insects that get disturbed by the movement of the rhinos, and can often be seen hitching a free ride on the rhinos' backs.

Here's a little message from these East Indian birds, in the wake of pollution worries in the Indian capital.
