    The black-faced tweety bird was the first twitiavian to be described in detail which is not surprising as they are absolutely everywhere in the
open environments of mainland Australia and southern New Guinea. Vast nomadic swarms, accompanied by their chattering twitters, fill the skies of inland Australia (although the birds are just as at home in woodlands and heath near the coast). Songs of individual birds are quite melodious but quickly degenerate into earsplitting  noise-pollution when competing with hundreds of their comrades. They are quite fearless and will accompany large animals, chasing insects disturbed by their footfalls.
