The White-fronted Honeyeater is distributed from western and central Australia through to inland south-east Australia. It is found in dry scrublands where there are shrubs in blossom and in eucalypt woodlands.
|It has a white mask across the forecrown and up to the eye, a black then white line below the eye and a whitish patch on the ear. The head is blackish with white scales and underparts are white with a black throat and breast. There is a small dull red spot behind the eye which is just visible in photos 1 and 2. The wings have dull yellow-green edging.|
