Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-large honeyeater found in southwestern Australia, typically in scrub and dry coastal woodlands. Grayish brown overall with fine white streaking; pale tips to tail feathers and chestnut in primary feathers most easily observed in flight. Easily distinguished from Red Wattlebird by the lack of pink wattles below the eye and the lack of yellow lower belly. Often found near flowering Banksia, where it is typically very active and vocal, with rough, loud, squawking calls.
