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!

Thank you StewartReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
What a curious bird that is! Very photogenic. Congratulations on your observation!ReplyDelete
Your honeyeater is interesting looking. I hope you recover quickly.ReplyDelete

What a beautiful Honeyeater! Wish our birds would pay attention to the field guides and be where they are supposed to. :)
Hope you are all feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
