Little Friarbird

Philemon citreogularis

Description:

These talky cuties are "the smallest of the friarbirds, with a medium, curved bill with no casque (a bump, characteristic of other friarbirds) and a squared off tail when spread. It is brown-grey above, paler grey on neck and collar, with a distinctive bare blue-grey face patch, and pale greyish white below with fine white streaking on the breast." (Birdlife Australia)

Habitat:

Perched on the side of the tree before heading to the bird bath slightly below in the garden. Plenty of company from Double-barred Finches (Taeniopygia bichenovii), Long-tailed Finches (Poephila acuticauda acuticauda), Peaceful Doves (Geopelia striata placida), a couple of Great Bowerbirds (Chlamydera nuchalis), and a bunch of other bird species in the garden at Goombaragin on the Dampier Peninsula.
