The Yellow Honeyeater (Lichenostomus flavus) is a species of bird in the Meliphagidae family. It is endemic to Australia.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests.

The Yellow Honeyeater hovers in front of the spectacular flowers of the wild Bottlebrush Orchid or Coelandria smillieae which appear in northern Queensland between August and November, while feeding upon the nectar and pollinating the flowers.[2]
