Little or Grey Friarbird

Philemon [citreogularis or kisserensis] (= Philemon citreogularis) (Gould, J 1837)

The little friarbird, also known as the little leatherhead or yellow-throated friarbird, is the smallest of the friarbirds within the Philemon genus. It is found throughout northern and eastern Australia as well as southern Papua New Guinea. It lives a very prominent life, whereby it can easily be seen chasing other honeyeaters, and also it is very vocal. However, the little friarbird is usually spotted high up in trees, rarely being seen on the ground. Source: Wikipedia
