The garden in the house we stayed at near Apollo Bay was a bit of a bird hot spot when I come to think of it.
My time perched on the veranda, trying to look inconspicuous, yielded some nice views and pictures of the passing birds. I'm not sure that dressing all in green and brown made any difference, but it made me feel like I was making an effort and not just sitting there hoping for the best!!
One of the birds that liked the blue flowers (does anybody know what they are?) was the Yellow-faced Honeyeater. I am not sure how many of these birds there were in the garden - at least 3 or 4 I would think.
The bird is described in the guide book as 'charming' - and I can't help but agree. Both the common name and its formal name - Lichenostomus chrysops - refer to its yellow face. This bird is common along most of the eastern side of the country, although this is the first time I have got any decent shots of one (or five, as the case may be!).
