The Noisy Friarbird is distributed along the east coast of Australia and inland into Queensland, New South Wales and the Murray-Darling Basin. It is found in woodlands, along rivers and in orchards and gardens.

As a honeyeater it feeds on nectar but also eats grapes, soft fruit and insects.

Its most striking feature is the knob on its bill and its bare black head. It's eye is dark red though this can't be seen on these photos. It has white plumes on its breast.
