…honeyeaters that is!

In January this year, when the Euodia trees were flowering, a couple of honeyeaters came in that I haven’t seen at Crater Lakes before.

The white-cheeked honeyeater was bossy, singing loundly and chasing the other honeyeaters away. I read on birdlife.org.au that they are colloquially known as the ‘Moustached Honeyeater’, but I think ‘Mutton-chops Honeyeater” would be more appropriate.

The yellow-faced honeyeater pictured below was shy, and I didn’t see it very much.

Here is a video I took of the white-cheeked honeyeater, calling loudly.
