SPECIES INFO

The Kadavu Honeyeater (Xanthotis provocator) is a species of bird in the Meliphagidae family. It is endemic to the islands of Kadavu in Fiji.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and tropical mangrove forests.

The bird is described as being fairly large, a bit like Spotted Honeyeater, but with a yellowish green bare skin eye-patch, bordered by light green feathering around the back end of it on the ear coverts. Dark streaked beneath with a whitish unstreaked central strip, upperparts greenish grey with pale fringes to wing feathers. Loud ringing Friarbird-type calls, the birds liked the tall mangroves along the creek.
