A Noisy Miner (Aussie bird).

This Noisy Miner bird (Manorina melanocephala) was in one of our citrus trees debugging it for us.

Thank you. It's interesting how different takes of a subject can appeal to differences tastes of the viewers.

Thank you. Sometimes birds don't always oblige for a good portrait, but at least I got this much of this bird.

Great pics Ross. Those noisy little birdies (who deserve their name) are constantly in competition with rainbow lorikeets for the blooms of the banksia in my front yard.

PS: No 3 is also my favourite.

Thanks Larry.
I like to have them around (occasionally ) but we have a number of Bowerbirds here at the moment (with a bower in our front garden) along with all the other birds that visit our place.

Re: A Noisy Miner (Aussie bird).

I have always enjoyed these little fella's when in Oz. They are similar to our starlings, always busy and lovely plumage.

Sometimes dismissed as a common boid, an error IMHO..……...

Yeah, they have their place. I saw a Little Wattlebird chase off (attack on the ground actually) a Whipbird this afternoon. I think the Whipbird thanked me for intervening.
