Hi Andrew,
We had a Noisy Pitta last year who came in to eat banana. This year we had one eating the entrails of a dead Northern Brown Bandicoot. We watched it and it was definitely not picking insects off.

Hi all

A friend at Mt Nebo, Brisbane, has a local Noisy pitta that likes eating 
banana. I thought this odd but the Handbook of the Birds of the World confirms 
that they do eat some vegetable matter such as fruit, berries and seeds.

Has anybody observed Noisy pittas eating vegetable matter?
