The current issue of "Wild" magazine (July-Aug 2010, No 118) has an article by Dr Steve Van Dyck, Senior Curator of Vertebrates at the Queensland Museum.

"A number of scientists who have studied noisy miners all their lives concur that it is one of the most pugnacious, aggressive species in Eastern Australia."

It seems they prefer open country with little understory. He suggests we should be "planting more shrubs between the power poles".
