I learnt something yesterday and all by accident.You see up to 24 hours ago I had never seen this bird before (Blue-faced Honeyeater ) nor did I have a clue what it would be called. Now thanks to modern technology (ie; digital camera, computer, internet and facebook) I can tell you, with a moderate degree of authority that this is a Entomyzon cyanotis but you all knew that anyway, didn't you?
|Entomyzon cyanotis (MELIPHAGIDAE) Blue-faced Honeyeater|
I also have to thank a few facebook friends who helped me identify this guy/girl and for providing me with the following link,
Entomyzon cyanotis (MELIPHAGIDAE) Blue-faced Honeyeater
As for the shrub he/she's on/in it's a Grevellia hybrid, most probably a 'Robyn Gorden' or 'Superb'.
Cheers and happy honey eaters,
