New Holland Honeyeater


This is a New Holland Honeyeater enjoying the nectar in a grevillea.

Flighty character
Like a busy feathered bee
Darting round nectar

Hi Gemma, great photo of the New Holland Honeyeater. I see the similar White-cheeked Honeyeater up this way. re the grey weather up here - this is NOT what I moved to Q'land for! I lived in Mt Eliza for 18 months a long time ago and I do remember what winter weather down there was like!!
