The joyful sounding Grey-crowned Babbler (Pomatostomus temporalis) are highly gregarious, communal birds, often in noisy family groups.

The Babblers can be seen throughout Central Australia, especially in open forest and woodland scrub. Can be seen along the scenic drives of the MacDonnell Ranges, in parklands around Alice Springs including Olive Pink Botanic Gardens and Alice Springs Desert Park.
