Noisy Miner in an Old Man Banksia

Not everyone likes Noisy Miners. On the plus side, they are a native species. On the negative side, they can be quite aggressive to other birds and their presence seems to coincide with a decline in numbers of very small birds.

Still, they are a natural part of our environment here in Sydney, and I think they look rather striking when their yellow colouration is brought out strongly among the yellows of the Old Man Banksia.

I studied Short Story Writing and Freelance Journalism for a total of five years when I was younger, but it's only lately that I've tried to make a go of it as a professional. I have written eleven books now, all published by Amazon Kindle, and most also published as paperbacks by Createspace and available on the Amazon web-site. Several Sydney libraries have copies of some volumes, and they are currently on loan.My books are all listed by Goodreads. The total number of ratings of my titles there is in excess of 80, with an average of 4.4 stars. I am happily married to Ronald Sharp, the creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House. He has consistently encouraged me to write, and has spent much time in editing, compiling, and designing the covers of each book. I'm keen on swimming, love animals, and appreciate good music and art.
