Another of Australia's many Honeyeaters this week. The Yellow-plumed Honeyeater (Lichenostomus ornatus) is found in the dryer regions along the southern edge of Australia, making it another bird I don not see very often. It will therefore come of no surprise to regular readers (viewers?) that these pictures were taken while I was in the Mallee a while ago.
This bird paid a visit to a hide I was sat in, stayed in the branches of a nearby small gum tree for a while and then left.
Honeyeaters are a wonderful group of birds.
So far it seems that my reduction in work hours has not been noticed by my employer - in fact it feels like I may be given more, rather than less work! As a result I am so terribly far behind on blog visits that it's not even funny anymore!
