Anyone that has seen a honeyeater’s nest will appreciate the beauty and intricacy of their handiwork. Two local species, White-plumed and Fuscous Honeyeaters, both make beautiful, suspended structures. I’ve found nests of both regularly, usually quite close to the ground and cryptically hidden in the foliage. The set of photographs below show a White-plumed Honeyeater feeding nestlings in a Wirilda Wattle overhanging the Loddon River, and a Fuscous Honeyeater (also with recently hatched nestlings) in a small eucalypt sapling at the Rise and Shine.
