SPECIES INFO

The Noisy Scrub-bird (Atrichornis clamosus) is a species of bird in the Atrichornithidae family. It is endemic to Australia. It was presumed extinct until a population was discovered at Two People's Bay in the Southeast of Western Australia in the 60s. Since then a recovery plan has been put into action. Populations of the bird have been translocated to nearby Waychinicup National Park as well as the Porongorup Ranges, where a wildfire unfortunately decimated the population. All reserves where it is known to exist are now baited with 1080 to control foxes. Its natural habitat is temperate shrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss.
