The red-browed pardalote (Pardalotus rubricatus) is a small brightly coloured insectivorous passerine, endemic to Australia. A gleaning specialist, they forage primarily in eucalypt trees. The Latin word rubricatus means 'red-ochred' which is descriptive of their orange-red eyebrow. Other common names include red-browed diamondbird, bellbird, cape red-browed, pale red-browed, fawn-eyed, fawn-eyebrowed and pallid or red-lored pardalote.
Adult red–browed pardalotes are a large pardalote with an average length of 10.5 cm and wingspan of 6.0–6.6 cm. Their wingspan is 5.8–6.2 cm in length. The red–browed pardalote does not exhibit plumage that changes seasonally and is not sexually dichromatic. The nominate race rubricatus have a pale iris, a black crown with distinctive white spots and a yellow to buff supercilium. They have a red to orange-red brow and a yellow breast patch with yellow wing panels. Juvenile birds are generally paler in comparison to adults. They have a darker iris that is olive to pale olive, a duller crown with less obvious patterning and a dull orange-yellow brow.
