While looking through Trove for something else I came across a report of a meeting in Melbourne of the RAOU on 2 July 1919. This included the below odd ob offered by Dudley Le Souef.  The reference to a ‘greenie’ suggests that the honeyeater was a White-plumed.  They have that distinctive alarm call. Perhaps the meerkats at our local zoo will react in a similar way to the cries of Noisy Miners.  At least look around, one would expect.
