Mynas have steadily moved northwards in New Zealand. They were initially introduced in the South Island, but are no longer found there. By the 1890s mynas were numerous in Wellington, Manawatū and the Wairarapa, but they have almost disappeared from these areas. Their southern limit is now a line from Whanganui to Waipukurau, and their major populations are in the north of the country.
