Pseudo Babblers: Pomatostomidae


Pseudo babblers of New Guinea live in regions up to 1,500 feet (500 meters). Members of this family can also be found in the western Papuan Islands and throughout Australia. They avoid the desert regions of the central and northwest and the southeastern and southwestern seacoasts. Mostly, pseudo babblers forage under eucalyptus (yoo-kah-LIP-tus) trees and in clearings among acacia (uh-KAY-shah) trees. In New Guinea, they occupy rainforests. Where the foraging territories overlap, different species of pseudo babblers do not divide the resources between groups; they openly compete for the same foods in the same areas.
