|Large-billed Gerygone Gerygone magnirostris
|Cairns, Queensland, Australia
The Large-billed Gerygone is distributed along the north and north-east coasts of Australia as well as Papua New Guinea and nearby islands. It is found in mangroves and in woodland along the coast and rivers.
|It feeds on spiders, beetles, moths, etc..
The bill is heavy, the eye is reddish-brown, there is a white spot at the bill and it has white "eye-lids".
The nest, seen here in photo 4 is a bulky, domed structure with a long ragged tail.
|The song is a lilting reel of 3 to 4 notes repeated several times. (The loud song in the recording is a Green Oriole.)|
