Although native to woodlands and open forests, the noisy miner is a common sight in parks and gardens.

Despite their moderate size, these outgoing birds unite in territorial groups to mob predators such as hawks, kookaburras, snakes and goannas.

Noisy miners feed on nectar, insects, frogs, lizards, seeds, fruits, and just about anything else they can get their little beaks on.
