Grey-crowned Babbler

Now that the weather is warming up, and the Noisy Miner seem to have moved on, the Grey-crowned Babbler have come back to our yard and have been very active in the garden. It looks like all the trouble we went to mulching the garden is paying off, as the Babblers look for food and gather material for their play nest which they are building in a tree across the road. We have counted at least 8 birds in this group so far at one time.

Grey-crowned Babbler (Pomatostomus temporalis)


It is possible that this is a young one, as I saw it being fed by another bird.
