Southern or Yellow Figbird

Sphecotheres [vieilloti or flaviventris] (= Sphecotheres vieilloti) Vigors & Horsfield, 1827

The Australasian figbird, also known as the green figbird, is a conspicuous, medium-sized passerine bird native to a wide range of wooded habitats in northern and eastern Australia, southern New Guinea, and the Kai Islands. It is common in large parts of its range, and occurs in numerous protected areas. Consequently, it is rated as least concern by BirdLife International and the IUCN. Source: Wikipedia
