Wattlebird \Wat"tle*bird`\, n.
1. (Zool.) Any one of several species of honey eaters
belonging to Anthochaera and allied genera of the family
Meliphagidae. These birds usually have a large and
conspicuous wattle of naked skin hanging down below each
ear. They are natives of Australia and adjacent islands.
Note: The best-known species (Anthochaera carunculata) has
the upper parts grayish brown, with a white stripe on
each feather, and the wing and tail quills dark brown
or blackish, tipped with withe. Its wattles, in life,
are light blood-red. Called also wattled crow,
wattled bee-eater, wattled honey eater. Another
species (Anthochaera inauris) is streaked with black,
gray, and white, and its long wattles are white, tipped
with orange. The bush wattlebirds, belonging to the
genus Anellobia, are closely related, but lack
conspicuous wattles. The most common species
(Anthochaera mellivora) is dark brown, finely
streaked with white. Called also goruck creeper.
2. (Zool.) The Australian brush turkey.
