GRAY-CROWNED BABBLER (Pomatostomus temporalis): SPECIES ACCOUNT

Australia and lowland New Guinea.


This family of birds eats mainly insects and spiders but sometimes will eat seeds, buds, and fruit, and even small reptiles.


Pseudo babblers have no known significance to humans.


Pseudo babblers in some areas of Australia are threatened, or at a risk of extinction, or dying out. They have disappeared from some regions altogether. This is a result of habitat loss due to clearing land for agriculture and the introduction of invasive plants and livestock grazing.
