Females can be distinguished from males by a paler bill, duller-green back, and an extension of the streaked underparts up to the chin.
There are 4 subspecies:
Semi-open woodlands and eucalypt forests.
Their diet consists of fruit, berries, seeds, nectar and insects. They will occasionally take the nestlings of small birds.
The female builds a cup-shaped nest of bark and grass, bound with spider webs. This is attached by its rim to a horizontal fork on the outer-edge of the foliage of a tree or tall shrub. The female incubates the eggs alone, while the male helps to feed the young.
