Hi Peter,

There have been ten Noisy Pittas banded at Iluka Nature Reserve, North Cost NSW between 1980 and 1998. One was a juvenile in heavy moult, three were immatures with adult type plumage but with pink gapes, one had a grey fleshy gape (? immature), three were considered to be adults and two age not determined.

They were banded between 07 April and 24 August. It is presumed that they are altitudinal migrants but no one really knows.
