|Yellow-throated Honeyeater Nesoptilotis flavicollis
(aka Lichenostomus flavicollis)
January / February 2006
The Yellow-throated Honeyeater is endemic to Tasmania and the islands of the Bass Strait. It is common in a wide variety of habitats but especially eucalypt forest.
It feeds on nectar from eucalypt blooms and on fruit such as cherries which does not endear it to fruit farmers. It also eats insects which it gleans from bark or hunts on the wing.
It has olive-green upperparts and grey underparts. The dark head contrasts with the bright yellow throat and a small yellowish spot behind the eye.
