Noisy Miner Chick


Although Noisy Miners are native birds, they are one of the least attractive, as they do their best to drive everything else away, and they farm lerps. These are sapsucking insects which are highly destructive to native vegetation.

However this chick, who had just left the nest, was rather cute!


One day!
