(Viewing 4 of 7 photos)

Click to listen to sound sample Yellow-spotted Honeyeaters were once known as Lesser Lewin Honeyeater - the likeness to a Lewins is a problem for some. Graceful Honeyeaters are also very similar.

Yellow-spotted Honeyeaters live in and around rainforests in far north-east Qld. from Cape York south to about Townsville. They live in permanent territories as pairs and are a familiar sight in towns and gardens. Insects and small fruits form a large part of the diet but they also compete with Graceful Honeyeaters for nectar where available.
