If you're looking for Victoria's bird emblem, you won't find it in Museum Victoria's Field Guide to Victorian Fauna app.

The app contains over 700 Victorian species, but the Helmeted Honeyeater isn't one of them. Why not? We don't have a picture of one.

Museum Victoria is almost ready to launch the MV Field Guide app on the Android network – we just need a few final images. Can you help?

If you have a photograph of any of the species below, send it to discoverycentre@museum.vic.gov.au. If we like it, we'll give you a double pass for our museums and a $30 gift voucher for our museum shops. You'll also be credited as the image's photographer (and get your name in the MV Field Guide app).

  • Helmeted Honeyeater Lichenostomus melanops cassidix
  • Diamond Firetail Stagonopleura guttata
  • Plains Wanderer Pedionomus torquatus
  • Little Eagle Hieraaetus morphnoides

Haven't got the MV Field Guide app? Download it for free from the App Store. Android users, stay tuned – it's coming soon!

UPDATE: The Android version is now available from Google Play. Hooray!

Hey Nicole K, if you are looking for a picture of an ugly duckling I'm happy to send in a picture of myself!

You might have to wait until after this weekend but I'm sure there will be a few pics of a "Golden Plains" Wanderer about :) Love your Helmeted Honyeater pic btw - you should totally use that.
