Justification
This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

Yellow-throated Miner

The Yellow-throated Miner (Manorina flavigula) is a species of honeyeater, native to Australia. It is also commonly known as the 'White-rumped Miner'.

Description[edit]

In Yulara, Northern Territory, Australia

The Yellow-throated Miner is a medium sized bird, reaching a length of 26 to 28 centimetres (10.2-11.0 in). The dorsal surface is a dark grey, and the ventral surface almost white. The beak, eye skin, side of the throat, legs, feet and parts of the wing and tail are yellow. The feather surrounding the eye are black, and the rump is white.

Ecology and behaviour[edit]

The Yellow-throated Miner inhabits dry forests, but can inhabit parks and backyards of disturbed habitat. It is a loud, and conspicuous bird, congregating in large flocks outside of the breeding season. Unlike most honeyeaters, its diet consists mostly of insects, but does include some nectar. They are aggressive towards other birds, especially during the breeding season.

The distribution of the Yellow-throated Miner is wide across Australia. It is found west of the Great Dividing Range, but not in the Cape York Peninsula, north-eastern Northern Territory and small sections in central Australia. There are four subspecies of the Yellow-throated Miner. These are Manorina flavigula flavigula, Manorina flavigula lutea, Manorina flavigula obscura and Manorina flavigula wayensis. M. f. flavigula is the most eastern species, found in Queensland, New South Wales, north western Victoria and the eastern half of South Australia. M. f. lutea is native to the Northern Territory, the western half of South Australia, and eastern Western Australia. M. f. obscura is native to south-western Western Australia, and M. f. wayensis is native to the rest of Western Australia.
