I wonder how the aboriginals feel about seeing all you superior Europeans it was their land first was it not, most of you guys are descendants of petty criminals from the uk.
In Australia we have these birds, they are an introduced species called Indian Minor Birds. Now these yellow beaked grey and white birds are despised by many here, as what they do is move into an area, destroy all the native birds nests, breed in them themselves, grow their flock and expand their territory.
The native noisy miner is causing more damage than the invasive, introduced species of myna bird, new research has shown.
I live in western Sydney, I'm right in amongst it, and hey I love the diversity, the food, the language all of it.
But I also feel that I'm becoming a minority, as more and more Hijabs are replacing blonde, brunette, red headed people, more Arabic instead if English, Chinese, Russian, German, Spanish, Italian etc. crime getting worst shootings, robberies, gangs. It makes me uncomfortable living here now, and my husband and I have considered selling up and moving to the bush.
So I guess I'm now about to get labelled a racist islamaphobe like everyone else who speaks up, but you know what, I'm not ! I just really appreciate lots of colourful birds all chattering in their way more than I do grey and white invading ones who don't play nice and chases away the natives.

Sorry my mistake, got the minor bird bit right, but they are commonly called Indian Minors, however not really worth debating whether it's a noisy one or an Indian one, iI think I made my point.
Where I live is in Western Sydney, close enough to Parramatta and Merrylands to be aware of issues, where precisely is not something I would share on a public forum. a reply to: hopenotfeariswhatweneed
