Six honeyeaters

Here are six of our most common and ubiquitous local honeyeaters.

The White-eared Honeyeater and Yellow-faced Honeyeater tend to be more common over autumn and winter, especially the former which spreads out into drier woodlands over the cooler months. The remaining four species are apparently resident although their numbers can fluctuate considerably with changes in resource availability. All six species were photographed yesterday afternoon coming into water along Golf Links Track.

    A very good eye to be able to pick out and capture on camera the different birds on site. I am very impressed.

    These photos make me love birds even more. Birds are so sharp-witted. Thank you for giving us such pleasure. Kate

  3. Fabulous photographs Geoff. The clarity and subtle backgrounds highlight the birds’ plumage. I could see these photographs framed and hung in a row to enjoy.
