What do Noisy Miners and Rainbow Lorikeets have in common?

If we’re speaking gastronomically, here’s the answer. They both seem to love feasting on Banksia flowers.

Not so long ago I spotted these birds, each breakfasting on the same bush in our local park. They had splendid views to enjoy, too: they overlooked the river.

Who likes Noisy Miners?

Quite often, they are on the receiving end of bad press.

People say they are aggressive, and chase away other, sweeter birds.

Nevertheless, they can be quite engaging little characters.

Here’s a photo of a pair, taken at my local park.
