white birds
I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light
& sleep with their heads under their wings
until the dusk begins to walk through the streets.

Profiles of the Noisy Miner


Noisy miner, a native Australian bird, posing on my back verandah in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula.


Though of average size, these birds have been known to attack larger birds such as hawks and kookaburras in their bid to claim territory.


The noisy miner is also known as the mickey bird or soldier bird.
In Brisbane they have been recorded as attacking domestic cats and dogs in mobs.

Great close-up photos of the Miners. I'd rather see them than the imported variety (Myna) that recently came into my yard!
