|Spotted Catbird Ailuroedus
(aka Black-eared Catbird)
The Spotted Catbird is distributed in north-east Queensland, Australia and in Papua New Guinea and nearby islands. It is found in rainforests and forest margins but can stray into nearby farmland and gardens.
|It feeds mainly on fruits but
also flowers, sap and insects.
It gets its English name from the curious cat-like call that it makes. There are recordings on the MSU site.
