he Yellow-throated Honeyeater, endemic to Tasmania, is closely related to the White-eared Honeyeater of mainland Australia, but the two populations have been separated from each other thousands of years. The rising seas which created Bass Strait formed an ecological barrier that neither population could cross. Both species subsequently took slightly different evolutionary paths, but they still have similar habits, probing beneath bark in search of invertebrates and gleaning insects from the foliage of trees in a wide variety of habitats
