    Save The Regent Honeyeater Group Claimed

    Armidale, New South Wales, Australia

    Group Details

    RegentHoneyeater landcare

    The Regent Honeyeater is a unique Australian Songbird on the verge of extinction, with fewer than 400 estimated to survive in the wild. Every individual counts.

    The New England Tablelands of New South Wales is significant for the conservation of this critically endangered species as breeding pairs regularly nest in our region.

    Our group's vision is that Regent Honeyeaters become common again in the New England.

    Our objectives are to:
    1. Raise awareness within the wider community about the Regent Honeyeater.
    2. Enable the wider community to identify and report the presence of the Regent Honeyeater.
    3. Enable the wider community to engage in a range of actions to protect and conserve the Regent Honeyeater and other threatened woodland birds.

    Detailed Description

    The Regent Honeyeater is a striking and distinctive, medium-sized, black and yellow honeyeater with a sturdy, curved bill. Adults weigh 35 - 50 grams, are 20 - 24 cm long and have a wings-pan of 30 cm. Its head, neck, throat, upper breast and bill are black and the back and lower breast are pale lemon in colour with a black scalloped pattern. Its flight and tail feathers are edged with bright yellow.

    There is a characteristic patch of dark pink or cream-coloured facial-skin around the eye. Sexes are similar, though males are larger, darker and have larger patch of bare facial-skin.

    The call is a soft metallic bell-like song; birds are most vocal in non-breeding season. It has recently been placed in the genus Anthochaera along with the wattlebirds, and was formerly known by the name Xanthomyza phrygia.RegentHoneyeater landcare
