Distribution and habitat
The noisy scrubbird is one of Australia's rarest birds. Its natural habitat is temperate shrubland, and it is particularly threatened by habitat loss. It was presumed extinct until a population was discovered at Two Peoples Bay, east of Albany in Western Australia in the 1960s. Since then a recovery plan has been put into action. Populations of the bird have been translocated to nearby Bald Island, in Waychinicup National Park, as well as the Porongorup Ranges, where a bushfire had destroyed much of the population. All reserves where the noisy srubbird is known to exist are now baited with 1080 poison to control foxes.
