YELLOW HONEYEATER: Lichenostomus flavus
The Yellow Honeyeater is endemic to north Queensland.
It is common in open forests and woodlands with a shrubby understorey.
Its rich whistling calls are uttered frequently throughout the day.
- Because it feeds commonly on nectar, it is often abundant even in cities where native plants such as grevilleas an bottle-brushes have been used for landscaping.
- Near Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge it is most readily seen around Mareeba.
