Red Wattlebird in the Grevillea

The Red Wattlebird (Anthochaera carunculata) gets the name ‘red’ from the fleshy reddish wattle on the side of the neck. It has grey-brown plumage and white and yellow streaks on its stomach.  This is a large honeyeater and can be somewhat noisy. It has a very unusual call, there’s no mistaking it.  You can find out more about the wattlebird here.

This one was in the grevillea in our front garden on the weekend and I was able to get reasonably clear shots of it through our office window. I do love being able to watch nature from within my office.
