Where does the Flyeater live?

The Flyeater is a common name for several species of small birds in the family Acanthizidae, also known as gerygones or warblers.

They are found in various regions of Asia, Australia, and the Pacific islands, where they inhabit forests, mangroves, gardens, and other habitats with dense vegetation.

They feed mainly on insects, especially flies, which they catch in the air or on leaves and branches.

Some examples of Flyeaters are:
  • The golden-bellied flyeater (Gerygone sulphurea), which has a yellow belly and a grey back.
    It is widespread in Southeast Asia, from the Philippines to Indonesia and Malaysia.
    It is also called the yellow-bellied gerygone or the yellow-bellied warbler.
  • The fairy flyeater (Gerygone palpebrosa), which has a white eye-ring and a brownish-grey plumage.
    It is native to New Guinea and Queensland, Australia.
    It is also known as the fairy gerygone or the fairy warbler.
  • The brown-breasted flyeater (Gerygone ruficollis), which has a brown breast and a grey head.
    It is endemic to the Solomon Islands, where it lives in lowland and montane forests.
    It is also called the brown-breasted gerygone or the brown-breasted warbler.
Flyeaters are generally social and active birds, often forming mixed-species flocks with other insectivorous birds.

They are also territorial and defend their nests from predators and intruders.

They usually build dome-shaped nests with a side entrance, using plant materials, spider webs, and lichen.

They lay two to four eggs, which are incubated by both parents.

Flyeaters are not threatened by extinction, but some species may face local threats from habitat loss, fragmentation, and degradation due to human activities.

They may also be affected by invasive species, such as rats, cats, and snakes, that prey on their eggs and nestlings.
