March 29, 2017 – White-throated Gerygone (Gerygone albogularis)

These gerygones are found in eucalyptus woodlands and around rivers and streams in northern and eastern Australia and southeastern New Guinea. They forage in trees for insects and other arthropods, including beetles and flies. Forming lifelong pair bonds, they build oval nests with side entrances from bark and spiderwebs. They are known for their distinctive song which males sing throughout the day during the breeding season.
