Yellow-throated honeyeater Lichenostomus flavicollis

 

This is a reasonably common honeyeater in most habitats within Tasmania.

It is a bird of 18-22 cm with a dark grey crown, face and upper breast. It also has a silver grey cheek. Its distinctive yellow throat and yellowish under tail feathers identify this bird although immature birds have much lighter colours. It takes insects from foliage, probes bark. It also feeds on nectar and the manna of lerps on eucalypts.It has been known to scavenge human hair for its nest lining. Quite often in association with the White-eared honeyeater.
