Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This small brown honeyeater is extremely common in many parts of Australia. It has a small, triangular tuft of yellow feathers behind the eye (may appear black) and a yellowish panel in the folded wing. Juvenile Brown Honeyeaters are regularly confused with Dusky Honeyeaters (which are a darker sooty-brown and lack the yellow wing panel). Found in a wide variety of habitats, including mangroves, forests, parks/gardens, and arid inland areas. Very vocal with a wide variety of chattering calls.
