Photo of Animalia: White-throated Gerygone (species: Gerygone olivacea) (Gaia Guide)

Just fledged juvenile White-throated Gerygone (Gerygone olivacea)

Wamboin, NSW, Australia. I've never seen a juvenile Yellow Thornbill a) so yellow, and b) lacking the tell-tale striations behind the eye. To me this bird looks as though it has only just fledged - it still has a yellow gape through the bill. Even the bill doesn't seem as sharp as adult thornbill bills (hence the name).

Captured on 27 Mar 2012
