Wattlebird - Little

The little wattlebird is the smallest wattlebird, similar in appearance to yellow and red wattlebirds but without wattles. Juveniles are duller with a browner eye. Their calls range from strident to musical notes and alarm calls include a kwock or shnairt! They live in the Bimbi Park banksias, eucalypt trees, heaths and tea-tree scrub. Little wattlebirds feed on nectar with their long, brush-tipped tongues, and also eat insects, berries, and some seeds. Exceptional acrobatic flyer. One of my favourite birds.

Likelihood to see them: Common, need patience to spot.

Where to see them: Bimbi Park top block around flowering bushes.

Time: Sunrise and most of the day.
