1 lie largest of the honeyeaters, the Yellow Wattlehird is a slender, ungainly bird with characteristic wattles dangling from the cheek. Hocks visit eucalyptus trees to feed on insects and nectar. They also eat fruit from low shrubs, and sometimes from orchards, and use garden birdfecders. This aggressive and noisy bird can be recognized by its harsh, guttural call notes.
