The Bell miner, commonly known as the Bellbird, is endemic to South-eastern Australia. It can be found in coastal and mountain regions from Gympie in Queensland, to Melbourne in Victoria. Its habitat is open eucalypt forests that has dense shrubby understorey often at edges of rainforest areas.
Bellbirds eat mainly insects, they especially like psyllids and their lerps (sugary secretions used as protective shelters by the tiny psyllid insects) which are found in the foliage of Eucalypts. They also eat nectar and manna.
