Yellow Wattle Bird Plate
The Yellow Wattlebird occurs only in Tasmania and is Australia’s largest honeyeater. It is active, noisy and conspicuous, especially when it congregates into flocks, some of which may comprise dozens of birds. The call of this species is a discordant mixture of gargling and coughing noises, audible over long distances. Pairs may call in duets. When calling, the wattlebird throws its head back so far that the feathers of its crown may touch those of its back, and then it is suddenly jerked forward, releasing the call.
