I’ve got an odd-looking bird for today.
This is the Noisy Friarbird – a passerine bird that belongs to the Meliphagidae honeyeater family. They are native to southern New Guinea and eastern Australia.
A group of them visit our backyard on a daily basis – they love my grevillea.
They are also aptly named because they do like to make a ruckus.
One day I’ll be able to record them so I can share just how noisy they are.
Here’s a quick update: If you’d like to hear the ruckus these birds make, thanks to Brian over at Bushboys World, there’s a couple of sound files on Graham Chapman’s blog.
