(Viewing 4 of 6 photos)

Click to listen to sound samples Yellow Honeyeaters typify the tropics. In north-east Queensland from Broad Sound right to the tip of Cape York their loud, melodious whistles, often given as a duet by male and female, are one of the most likely sounds to greet you early in the morning. They prefer more humid habitats, often near water and in this respect replace the White-gaped Honeyeater which ranges further afield in northern Australia.
