The Varied Triller (Lalage leucomela) is a smaller member of the Cuckoo-shrike family, Campephagidae. This species prefers warm, reasonably moist environments and is found in New Guinea and the Bismarck Archipelago, along much of the tropical and sub-tropical coastal hinterland of eastern Australia, from about the Sydney area to the tip of Cape York Peninsula, in the moister part of the Kimberley, and throughout the Top End. They are common in the north and uncommon (sometimes rare) in the colder south. More
