The noisy scrubbird (Atrichornis clamosus) is a species of bird in the Atrichornithidae family. It is endemic to Australia.

Distribution and habitat[edit]

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.[2] 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.
