General Species Information:

Smallest Australian bird. Very active. Never sits still. Perches with cousin Pardalote quite happily.
A mix of gentle greens, browns and yellow make it quite an attractive bird.
Beak looks more like a finch's, than a thornbill's.
The brow is usually more obvious than shown in this photo.
