Indian hill mynah

Gracula is a genus of mynas, tropical members of the starling family of birds. Until recently only two species were recognised, G. religiosa and G. ptilogenys; earlier still all Gracula were considered to belong to a very variable species commonly called Hill Myna. But three additional subspecies of G. religiosa are increasingly being considered distinct species.

The Indian hill mynah is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
