General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Coastal Areas and possibly elsewhere
The two specimens here, photographed together, where different. We think the more orange eye brow was a male, as it had a larger bill, while the other was a female. Taken in November, they may have been coming out of breeding plummage?
