Zenfolio | Roger MacKertich Photography | Little Friarbird

In parts of south-eastern Australia, the harsh, discordant chatter and musical song of the Little Friarbird are a common part of the summer soundscape. They are summer breeding visitors to this part of the country, being present from August and September until March and April, when they depart on northern migration. However, further north, Little Friarbirds are recorded throughout the year. Their large, deep cup-shaped nests are usually suspended from a forked branch, often overhanging water, and are defended against other birds, either other Little Friarbirds or different species.
