Honeyeaters & Chats

(Family Meliphagidae)

The honeyeaters are largely arboreal and, while there is considerable diversity in size, almost all have slender, decurved beaks. The chats are more terrestrial with shorter, more pointed beaks. The tongue is bifurcate and brush-tipped. Seventy-three species have been recorded in Australia; of these 59 are endemic.. Honeyeaters can be found in almost every habitat and location in the country.
