Mountain Thornbill

Acanthiza katherina

The Mountain Thornbill, Acanthiza katherina, is a diminutive and sprightly bird, a member of the Acanthizidae family. It is a creature unique to the Australian continent, with a presence that is as discreet as it is charming.

Identification Tips

When endeavoring to identify the Mountain Thornbill, one should look for its modest size and the subtle coloration that allows it to blend seamlessly with its rainforest surroundings. Its plumage is a testament to its adaptation to the dense foliage it calls home.

Habitat

The natural abode of the Mountain Thornbill is the lush and verdant tropical rainforest. It finds solace and shelter in the dense canopies of the Atherton Tableland, located in the northeastern reaches of Queensland.

Distribution

This bird is an endemic species, its existence confined to the Australian landscape. It is a true native, never straying far from the rainforests that provide its sustenance and sanctuary.

Conservation Status

The Mountain Thornbill is currently classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN. It is a species that faces threats which could jeopardize its continued survival, and as such, it is under the watchful eye of conservationists.

The Mountain Thornbill, with its discreet charm and vulnerable status, is a feathered jewel nestled in the rainforests of Australia. It is a bird that beckons the observer to tread lightly, to look closely, and to cherish the natural wonders that are uniquely its own.

Love this app. It is easy to use and accurate, Their backup communication is really good. I noted a missing species. All through the process, I was kept informed about the progress in correcting the information. I now have the corrected, updated version. 😁 Thanks!

Terrific App for Birders
Downloaded Birda around the time my interest in birding was sparked, and it has been a terrific app to help me (1) share my experience, (2) document my sightings, and (3) learn more about birds in general. That said, I also believe Birda is a fantastic app for birders of all experience levels. Great community!
