    1. Yes it's a good looking bird isn't it? There have been quite a few of them around lately and they always catch my eye with that black and white head.

    1. TexWisGirl, we do have some lovely Honeyeaters here. We're very lucky to be able to see these lovely things.

  3. What a charmer! Is it actually eating honey? Sadly we don't have a lot of birds here in London, besides different kinds of pigeons and some crows and sparrows, certainly nothing exotic as your little friend. Lovely movie :-)

    1. Helene, they forage on the blooms in the trees out in the bush. They do love the nectar of the Eucalypt flowers. We are so very lucky here to be able to see a huge variety of birds and other wildlife. I never take it for granted.

  4. thank you for this Bernie - more bird sounds please. What struck me was the camouflage, (s)he is the identical colour combo as the tree. Of course, I assume this bird doesn't really want to hide, otherwise we wouldn't hear the song.

    1. Catmint, I can certainly share more bird sounds. I'm surrounded by beautiful bird song every day. These Honeyeaters have been especially vocal in the last couple of weeks.

    1. Thanks LT. There were a few other birds singing away in the background, but thankfully didn't drown out the wonderful Honeyeater bird song.

    1. Jean, that whoop-whoop song that you heard was the song of the Pheasant Coucal. It's an unmistakable sound.
