Yellow-throated Miner
Manorina flavigula

The Yellow-throated Miner is a close relation of the Noisy Miner and occurs in central and western parts of Australia. They are differentiated from Noisy Miners by a white rump (Noisy Miner has a grey rump) and the lack of a black cap. The other similar species is the increasingly rare Black-eared Miner, which occurs in a very limited area on the border of Victoria, NSW and South Australia. Their behaviour is much the same as the Noisy Miner in that they are gregarious and aggressive to other birds. 26-28 cm.
