AbstractThe objective of the study was to determine some blood components and properties of common Myna (Acridotheres tristis). A total of twenty two birds were collected from Madhepura district of Bihar during 2014, in the different season i.e winter and summer. Blood samples (1.0 ml) were collected from the wing vein. The findings revealed that the average values of PCV, red cell count, white cell count, hemoglobin concentration and H/L ratio of common Myna male were 36.96%, 4.28 X 106/m, 23.52 X 103/ml, 9.94 mg/100gm and 0.38 respectively during Winter and 35.88%, 3.77X 106/m, 23.26X 103/m, 8.17 mg/100gm and 0.37 respectively during Summer, whereas the average value of common Myna female were 36.71%, 4.11 X 106/m, 23.57 X 103/ml, 9.80 mg/100gm and 0.39 respectively during Winter and 35.72%, 3.53X 106/m, 23.26X 103/ m, 8.10 mg/100gm and 0.37 respectively during Summer. Protein, uric acid, cholesterol and lipid concentrations were 5.76, 5.11, 186 and 4.12 respectively during Winter and 5.29, 4.78, 212 and 3.81 mg/100gm respectively during Summer for common Myna male and 5.84, 5.12, 186 and 4.23 respectively during Winter and 5.40, 4.82, 217 and 3.89 mg/100gm respectively during Summer for common Myna female. Statistical analysis revealed Significant differences (P<0.05) in the average values due to sex and season.
