Author's notes

Initially thought this was a juvenile due to the lack of tail feathers but on reviewing the photos it seems to have nesting material in its beak. It then hopped into a nest further along the branch. While only sighting this one bird at this location, there were actually dozens of Noisy Miners in this area. I spotted at least two other nests.
