Yellow Thornbill

Acanthiza nana


The Yellow Thornbill is a small to medium-sized thornbill and is the most yellow of the thornbill group. It is greenish-olive on the back, with white streaking on the cheeks and ears, and has pale to bright yellow underparts. There is a reddish brown tone on the chin and throat. The young birds are similar but duller


A regular visitor to my garden. This particular one actually perched in this particular shrub in my backyard for around 5 minutes which is very unusual.
