Yellow wattlebird

Anthochaera paradoxa


The yellow wattlebird is the largest of the honeyeaters and is endemic to Australia. They are usually 375-450mm long. They are named for the wattles in the corners of their mouths. They have a white face and black streaked crown, long, pendulous yellow-orange wattle, which becomes brighter during breeding. They're wings are dark and their belly is yellow, whereas the upperparts are grey to dusky brown. The female yellow wattlebird is much smaller than the male.
