Species Description
The White-Eared Catbird is a medium-sized passerine found in the tropical and sub-tropical dry forests of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Adult catbirds subsist primarily on fruit, but will take the nestlings of other species on rare occasions; chicks are mostly fed insects. The White-Eared Catbird is a very vocal bird, with a loud, hissing call.
