The family of Australo-Papuan Bellbirds is endemic to Australia and New Guinea. The small family was only recently removed from the Whistlers and placed in their own family. The body size ranges from 16.5 cm to 26 cm. Australo-Papuan Bellbirds inhabit a multitude of forest areas that reach up to an altitude of over 3000 m. They feed mainly on invertebrates and occasionally on fruits and seeds. The breeding biology is mainly known from the Australian species. It remains monogamous and builds a deep, cup-shaped nest lined with a variety of materials including long-haired caterpillars. The clutch comprises 1 to 4 eggs, the young are incubated by both parents for 14 to 17 days and then cared for for 11 to 12 days.
