Noisy Miner

What noise annoys a Noisy Miner? Everything. Nothing. These are the most aggravating, annoying native birds I know of and I am sure their overabundance is linked to urban development. Development means loss of old growth and undergrowth that many native birds require, however these miners thrive. And chase off everything else leading to diversity loss. So bold the miners will scuttle people, kangaroos and all birds, big and small. I'm happy that includes the local populations of Common Mynas and Starlings, but that is the nicest thing I can say about them.


  1. They certainly are very noisy, I thought it was the Indian Mynah's that were more of a problem and aggressive.

  2. I'm no scientist but I don't think either are great.
