Crimson Chat
(Epthianura tricolor)

Arrernte name: inentyerlaperlape
Pronounced: in-ninj-a-larber-larber

The adult male of this striking bird has a crimson crown and breast and a white throat, with a broad black stripe through the eyes and onto the nape. The back and wings are a dark brown, and it has a short blackish tail with white tips to the feathers.

It has a wide distribution from the west coast of Western Australia, through the southern part of the Northern Territory, South Australia, into Queensland, New South Wales and northern Victoria, often regions that have rain. When Central Australia gets rain, flocks of these birds appear, seemingly out of nowhere.

They walk across the ground, nodding their heads and picking up insects. They have a brush-tipped tongue for sweeping nectar from ground-lowering herbs.
