Abstract

The breeding biology and behaviour of the yellow-throated honeyeater Lichenostomus flavicollis was studied at Mount Nelson, Tasmania. An influx of yellow-throated honeyeaters, including females, in late June resulted in an increase in territorial disputes and the initiation of breeding activities. Nest building and incubation was only carried out by the female, while the male was occupied in territorial defence. Fledglings were fed by both parents until the the female started building the nest.
