The Noisy Miner is a bold and curious bird. It is identified by its mostly grey body and black crown and cheeks. The bill is yellow, as are the legs and the naked skin behind the eye.
Noisy Miners range from northern Queensland along the eastern coast to South Australia and Tasmania. They are found in woodlands and open forests. They have also become well adapted to suburban situations and are a common sight in parks and gardens.
In suburban parklands and lightly timbered agricultural lands, an increase in population numbers may impact on local wildlife by displacing or excluding other native bird species. As a result, some people regard them as a nuisance.
