Noisy Miner Birds Australia

The Noisy Miner (also known as the Mickey Bird) is a grey bird with a black head, orange-yellow beak and feet, a distinctive yellow patch behind the eye and a white tip on the tail feathers. Usually males, females and young are similar in appearance; however, the young noisy miner maybe brownish-grey.

Noisy Miners are a vocal species with a large range of songs, calls and usual sounds. The young birds are constantly vocalizing. Maybe that's why they got their name - Noisy Miners.

Noisy Miners are usually found on the east and south-east of Australia from far North Queensland down through New South Wales and Victoria to Tasmania and Eastern South Australia.

Noisy Miners live in woodlands and open forests. They have also adapted to suburban areas and are common place in backyards, gardens and parklands. The density of the Noisy Miner population has increased in many locations because of the popularity of nectar-producing garden plants like the large-flowering grevilleas.

Noisy Miners breed in small and large colonies and they breed all year round. The female incubates the eggs alone; however, both male and female take care of the young birds and feed them.

Noisy Miners are aggressive birds and throught out the day can be found chasing, pecking, fighting, scolding, mobbing or targeting intruders and colony members.
