Noisy Miner in a Banksia Noisy Miner in a Banksia

Not everyone likes Noisy Miners. On the plus side, they are a native species. On the negative side, they can be quite aggressive to other birds and their presence seems to coincide with a decline in numbers of very small birds.

Still, they are a natural part of our environment here in Sydney, and I think they look rather striking when their yellow colouration is brought out strongly among the yellows of the Old Man Banksia.

    I’m sorry these birds have an aggressive side as they’re really quite attractive and certainly belong there bringing the environment to life.
    Very Happy New Year Margaret

      Yes, they are quite pleasant to look at, and interact nicely with people. They are happy to accept crumbs of food.
      xxx A very Happy New Year to you, David xxx

    He looks like he has quite a personality.
    Hope your new year is filled with adventures and wonder!

      Yes, he is a bright little bird, and as the name suggests, he makes his presence felt 🙂
