The Little Friarbird is the smallest of the friarbirds, with a medium, curved bill with no casque (a bump, characteristic of other friarbirds) and a squared off tail when spread. It is brown-grey above, paler grey on neck and collar, with a distinctive bare blue-grey face patch, and pale greyish white below with fine white streaking on the breast. Females are slightly smaller, but otherwise similar. Young birds are browner above, with more yellowish colourings on chin and throat. More

Little Friarbirds are less common and less conspicuous than Noisy Friarbirds at our place south of Narrabri, New South Wales. When Noisy Friarbirds are around, their small cousins have a hard time feeding, because they will be chased away. But then they, on the other hand, hustle other, smaller Honeyeaters... Seen by us up until March of each year, then again in September. More
