In 2013 and 2014, Noisy Miners (Manorina melanocephala) were observed consuming a human-provided food source. We describe here how individual Noisy Miners manipulated, opened, and fed from sugar packets found at an outdoor cafe. This is the first published observation of this behavior in this species. Further systematic observations of this feeding behavior are necessary to ascertain how frequent and localized this event is in this species of honeyeater.
