Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very small songbird found in forests of southwestern Australia as well as the Eyrean Peninsula of South Australia. Gray above, bright yellow below, with gray upper breast and off-white throat. This species perches on low branches and on the side of tree trunks before flying down to the ground to capture prey. Yellow rump and pale stripe in wing obvious mostly in flight. Differs from Eastern Yellow Robin by its gray breast (also note range). Voice is a slow repetitive "chew-chew-chew" whistle; also gives a rough, chattering, scolding call.
