Just to prove that not all Australian birds are outrageously bright, here are some Brown-headed Honeyeaters (Melithreptus brevirostris) from NW Victoria.
This bird is widespread along much of southern Australia - and occurs in a range of subspecies, but I am not confident to identify this species to such a level! These birds came in to drink at a water point / hide on a patch of native bush nr. Patchewollock - a tiny town with wonderful resident bird life to be found around it.
This bird is about 12 or 13cm long, and this is the first time I have managed to photograph them. I am growing more fond of hides by the day!
