The antics of a Young Noisy Minor.

The Noisy Minor bird is a native of Australia & this young one was no different to any other young bird, it wanted food.

"Ah, I wonder where Mum is right now? I'm hungry!"




"Gee, it's a bit tough when I have to look for parasites on myself to get a feed!"




"Wot you lookin' at?"




"Ah, thanks Mum. I'm starving!"



"Blimey she's gone again. It's like waiting between courses in a restaurant!"



Hope you liked it.

Cute Ross. This scenario is playing out in our yard too as the Juniors harass the parents. We are having such foul weather at the moment it is tough for the fledglings.

Re: The antics of a Young Noisy Minor.

They are in plague proportions here too, Ross. And a lot of Indian Myna's also.

It's a great set of images you've captured.

Indian Myna's vermin - kill. Native noisy minors welcome.

Thanks Lyn.
At least we aren't hearing young Sulphur Crested Cockatoos begging for food at the moment. Boy are they painful to listen to.

I had one of the Noisy Minor parents try to scare me off flying past my head with the snapping beak sound. Cheeky thing! We don't need the Indian Mynas though. I just just realised they're actually spelt differently!

They (Indian Mynas) don't last long if they're silly enough to fall down our chimney though (i.e. humanely disposed of) during nesting time.

The Indian Mynas are aggressive to our native birds & that is why they are discouraged & disliked. The green & yellow budgerigars are native Australian birds & the other colours are only from captive breeding.

I know - I was one of those breeders! I had an aviary full and chicks every year. I never really got into competitive showing though.

I have to say though that just because an animal/bird is native doesn't mean that it can't be vermin . We have a fair few native pests in the UK - even the odd politician .

Budgies aren't seen around the Sydney area particularly & would have to be one of the better birds to have around anyhow. It's the Sulphur Crested Cockatoos that are the pests around here. Apart from the noise, they are very destructive & pinch my oranges too.



And scraps for the chooks.


They also chase the other birds away & eat all the food we put out (that's a bad habit to start with)


But they're welcome to eat the neighbours privot (another pest, but a plant).


Speaking of pollies, we've had some pests there too, but some from the other side would say we have new pests now.
