Noisy Miners and Ravens

I introduced the Noisy Miner yesterday. Here it is again with a portrait taken just two days ago. A brave little bird, living communally and defending their territory vigorously from ravens and other big birds.
above: Noisy Miner, Hobart. I call them 'Yellow Eye'

above: Noisy Miner attacking a Forest Raven, Hobart. It is unbelievable how skillful they are and how intimidating they look in the air when frozen on a photo. More such pics to come...

and above: Australian Raven, Sydney, a photo taken years ago with my old camera, showing Ranvens in a very intimate moment, talking to each other, hidden from the burning afternoon sun.
