It's a little wattle bird!!

Little Wattlebird

Scientific name: Anthochaera chrysoptera

Family: Meliphagidae

Order: Passeriformes

From all the photo's I took yesterday this one came out the best. I had so many good opportunities chasing this little starling chick while he/she was feeding on the ground but not one good photo worth posting:) However I did have a nice time in the park.


  1. Good morning!
    You are right. It is the Little Wttlebird, also known as Brush Wattlebird. It's cute and has a very funny voice!

  2. Thank you Mr Tilcheff!
    I knew you would know.
    I don't think they have a very pleasant voice!

  3. Reminds me of the bird I saw yesterday attacking other birds. It ripped the feathers out of two different birds and it was harassing others that flew down near it. I was kind of suprized!
