Painted Honeyeaters

Prior to visiting the Tawny Frogmouths, I spent an hour on a bush block where Painted Honeyeaters have been seen in the last week but I dipped badly. However, the noise from the 6-8 White-winged Trillers was distinctive and I got my best ever shots of a male Mistletoebird. A pair had a juvenile trailing along demanding to be fed at every wingbeat [or so it seemed].

Other birds on the block were Willie Wagtails, Jacky Winters and Varied Sittellas.

A revisit to bird the Painted Honeyeaters is scheduled.
