Wild Bird Wednesday 511 - White-plumed Honeyeater

Well, Covid19 has found us, so this will be a very brief post.

More birds from around the water-tank I mentioned last week.  These birds are White-plumed Honeyeaters (Lichenostomus penicillatus).  This is a medium sized honeyeater, found in  open forests and woodlands, often near water and wetlands.  I smiled when I found this note about its distribution: "It is scarce or absent in arid regions unless water artificially supplied (e.g. water troughs for stock)".

Its nice when the birds do what they are supposed to do!

    Ugh... sorry about the lurgy; be better soon. Meanwhile, thanks for the beautiful birdy!!! YAM xx

  2. Those Honeyeaters are a very diverse group. All six of us in the household came down with COVID in January. All were immunized, had mild symptoms and recovered quickly. We just got our second boosters. Hope you are doing well.

  3. What a curious bird that is! Very photogenic. Congratulations on your observation!

  4. Your honeyeater is interesting looking. I hope you recover quickly.

  5. Get well soon!
    What a beautiful Honeyeater! Wish our birds would pay attention to the field guides and be where they are supposed to. :)

  6. Hope you are all feeling better soon.
