|Yellow-faced Honeyeater Caligavis chrysops
(aka Lichenostomus chrysops)
The Yellow-faced Honeyeater is distributed in eastern and south-eastern Australia from Atherton Tableland, Queensland round to the Flinders Ranges, South Australia. It feeds on nectar from eucalypts and banksias as well as on insects. It is found in a wide variety of forest, woodland and scrub habitats.
|It is olive-grey above and lighter grey-brown below. Its narrow, black mask is split by a curved yellow streak from the bill to below and beyond the eye with another yellow strip behind the eye. Photos 1 and 2 are of the nominate race while photo 3 shows the sub-species C. c. barroni from Queensland which has greyer underparts.|
