Do Noisy Miners in a group share parenting responsiibilities? There is, as
far as I can tell, only one nest with a couple of chicks in it down the back
yard, and every Miner in the area seems to be defending it. Do they gather
food as a team as well? They've been quite bold lately as well, individuals
rather than groups attacking anything that comes into the yard, Magpies
included. Though they seem to have developed an uneasy truce with the
resident Grey Butcherbirds.
