|The Feral Indian Miner Bird and aggressive little pest.|
|The Noisy Miner Bird is a native bird and is being driven out of our garden by its introduced cousin.|
Recently I noticed we had an invasion of Indian Miners and they had driven away all the native birds, except our little Willy Wag Tail who is a very quick and brave little bird. The miners would come into the garden in the morning screeching and making an awful din and chase any other birds away . Even the butcher birds left. I was getting quite concerned as they seemed to have moved in . Then one day I was leaving the house and disturbed them on the front verandah - 3 of them... helping themselves to the dogs breakfast!
Immediately I realised what was going on. The attraction was indeed the dogs breakfast! So I wonder ....how many people feed their pets outside? and do you have a problem with Miner birds?
If you do maybe you need to rearange your pets dining arrangements! Willow is now allowed to dine inside and peace has been restored, now we have all these birds back in the garden:
|Pied Imperial Pigeon - these are beautiful large birds with a soft but very distinct cooing call|
|Friar Birds, are lovely active honeyeaters|
|Pied Butcher Bird also called The Singing Assassin!|
