The White-throated Gerygone has a cascading melodious song and bright olive, yellow and white plumage that makes it easy to recognise. It feeds on insects in the outer canopy of trees.

There are few records in winter, but numbers increase quickly from September to October, then decrease through November and December as the birds move into the woodland areas to breed. More

you’re an eagle – and the White-throated Gerygone has perhaps the most beautiful song of any Australian songbird. The field guides wax lyrical – let me quote Michael Morecombe: ‘Loud, clear, carrying. Usually begins with several loud, piercing, high notes immediately followed by pure, high, clearly whistled, violin-like notes that descend in an undulating, silvery, sweet cascade, at times lifting briefly, only to resume the downward, tumbling momentum. Abruptly returns to the initial louder, sharper notes to repeat the whole sequence, often with slight variations. More
