Miner Birds!

Not to be confused with the Indian myna bird (officially recognised in Australia as a more damaging introduced species than the cane toad), these are native Australian noisy miner birds – and yes, they’re very loud!

A huge flock of them has taken up residence here recently. Here are a few of them raiding the leftover rice.
