Hattah-Kulkyne National Park – Noisy Miner
Our holiday in Victoria
While we were having lunch on the banks of Lake Hattah during our holiday in Victoria last year we were visited by a group of honeyeaters, the Noisy Miner. These fearless birds are common in the camping and picnic grounds of the Hattah-Kulkyne National Park in north west Victoria.
They are quite unafraid of humans having a picnic lunch or camping near the lakes. They hang around under picnic tables – and even on the tables. They have learned that people will drop crumbs and tidbits from their food. This species will eat out of your hand and are not afraid to actually steal food from your plate when you are not attentive.
