Grey-Crowned Babbler, Pomatostomus temporalis

Normf

Emerald Beach, Australia

Artist's Description

I think this really captures the “babbler” look. These really social and interesting birds are quickly declining in many parts of the country. They are now classified as endangered in some states.The Grey-crowned Babbler is widespread throughout north-western, northern, central and eastern Australia. It is also found in Papua New Guinea. Grey-crowned Babbler populations have declined throughout their range as a result of land-clearing practices that leave habitats fragmented. When groups become isolated, numbers decline to a level where they cannot continue to successfully breed. Overall populations have declined by 95% since European settlement.
This one belongs to a Population at just nth of Grafton, NSW, Australia.
