The Crested Myna (Acridotheres cristatellus) is endemic to southeastern China and Indochina.

Around 1890, the Crested Myna was successfully introduced into the Vancouver region of British Columbia, reaching a population in the thousands. However, by the mid-twentieth century, their numbers began declining and the bird is now locally extinct in North America.
