Noisy miner

The other day I visited the Rose Garden in the Botanical Gardens once again. Many of these small (24-28cm) birds were active in the garden. I think I have identified them correctly; the noisy miners frequent areas where there is a good supply of nectar and insects. They are found throughout the eastern states and South Australia.

I always thought they were "minah" birds - my dad was a miner but he never sang!

having done some research now I discover that the "noisy miner" found all over Australia is not the same as the myna, mynah or minah bird more commonly found in India.
