Noisy miner bird, Manorina melanocephala IMG 6134 - Noisy miner birds are often referred to as 'Happy Family Birds', and although they might get on well with others of their species, they are very aggressive towards other birds and can become the dominant species within a region that they claim as they own domain. This bird was feeding on the nectar of the flowers of an aloe, a drought tolerant succulent plant.
