Wild Bird Wednesday - New Holland Honeyeater


All winter this Grevillea has been flowering and feeding the 
resident New Holland Honeyeater as well as a few others.


Now, also this large Banksia is full of delicious nectar and well 
worth protecting.


A quick feed and 


back to sentry duty warding off the much larger Wattle Birds.


There's one . . . come on boys, attack!

  2. What a pretty bird! It's so interesting to me as a birdwatcher to see those from other countries, as I likely won't ever get to see them myself. Hope things are better these days.

  20. Brilliant photography. I don't think I have seen that honeyeater and it was a real treat. Our wattle birds are real bully birds and will take on just about anything. They swoop the cats, the cockies and the corellas for an alliterative start.
