Regent Honeyeater

Regent Honeyeater by Tim Dolby

​The Regent Honeyeater, Anthochaera phrygia, closely related to the wattlebird, is a critically endangered native pollenator that has suffered greatly from land clearing and degradation. 

Once found in flocks from Brisbane to Adelaide, just 500 of these birds now survive in dry box forests and woodland areas in Western NSW. A massive effort is underway to save this iconic bird from extinction.
