White-plumed Honeyeater

Ptilotula penicillata (Gould, 1837)

The White-plumed Honeyeater (Lichenostomus penicillatus) is a bird native to Australia. It is yellow above and paler beneath, with a black and white line on the sides of its neck. The white neck band of a White-plumed Honeyeater is its most prominent feature, the rest of the feathers being shades of green and buff. Juveniles have a pinkish orange beak that darkens to black in adults. Honeyeaters feed on nectar and insects and their nest is a small cup nest in a tree. The size of an average White-plumed Honeyeater is approximately 19 cm. Source: Wikipedia
