Chestnut-breasted Whiteface

Aphelocephala pectoralis

The Chestnut-breasted Whiteface, known scientifically as Aphelocephala pectoralis, is a charming bird that belongs to the Acanthizidae family. This avian species is distinguished by its unique coloration and is a true endemic treasure of Australia.

Identification Tips

When attempting to identify the Chestnut-breasted Whiteface, look for its distinctive chestnut breast, which contrasts sharply with its pale face. The bird's subtle yet striking plumage makes it a delightful find for any keen birdwatcher.

Habitat

This species thrives in subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, where it can often be found flitting among the sparse vegetation, perfectly adapted to its arid surroundings.

Distribution

The Chestnut-breasted Whiteface is exclusively found in Australia, where it graces the landscape with its presence. Its range is limited to this continent, making it a special sighting for those exploring the Australian wilds.

Conservation status

The future of the Chestnut-breasted Whiteface is of concern, as it is currently classified as Near Threatened by the IUCN. The primary threat facing this species is habitat loss, a pressing issue that requires attention to ensure the bird's continued survival.

Great bird recording
For a while Iโ€™ve been trying to find an app to easily record bird lists and day out and struggled to find one that I like. Birda is great for this, straightforward and a great community!

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!

Work together with community
Been loving using this app to log my bird sightings and work together with community members to identify different birds. I've already learned a lot since I started about a month ago!

Makes you want to spot birds more
I think this app is fun. It makes you want to spot birds more so I guess in a way it encourages you to get out and about instead of sitting in front of the TV.
