Noisy Friarbird

Philemon corniculatus

Noisy Friarbirds are the most commonly recorded breeding summer migrant. The nest is a deep bowl of woven bark, wool and other fibres, suspended in a leafy outer branch. The birds are often aggressive in defence of the nest, sometimes even towards people. Nesting generally starts in October. The earliest dependent young are seen at the end of October with the majority of records from early January to late February. R=12. BR=8.
