The sound of Bell Miners calling in the bush is often greeted with a feeling of benign sentimentality, but this is not the case for the other species of birds trying to share the habitat with them. Bell Miners are territorial and pugnacious, so that when they move into a patch of forest they usually evict most of the other small birds. This has been exacerbated in recent years by Bell Miners expanding their range, thus exposing birds in new regions to their aggressive, domineering behaviour.
