General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), Coastal Areas and elsewhere
Generally olive with a black stripe through the eye. The black stripe is then highlighted with a yellow patch bleeding to white below the ear.
The Ellura specimens seem to have a more prominent white area behind the yellow patch than we've seen before.
Its song is similar to a Red Capped Robin.
