As their name suggests, the Noisy Friarbird is a loud and very active honeyeater. It is most often seen in trees, in small groups that include other honeyeater species.

Their main food is nectar but like most birds, supplement that with insects.

Also known as a Leatherhead, probably because of its bald head and neck, this bird is also distinct because of its red eyes and prominent knob on its bill.

Noisy Friarbirds are found along most of eastern Australia.
