This is probably the last of the 'water tank' posts (at least for a while)
These birds are Spiny-cheeked Honeyeaters, which are far more common in the dry, inland parts of Victoria than in my neck of the woods. When I was in the Mallee I saw them every day, but I rarely see them around Melbourne.
The Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater (Acanthagenys rufogularis) is the only species in the genus Acanthagenys. It is large, for a honeyeater, ranging from 22 to 27 centimetres and weighing around 52 grams.
'Covid-normal' is a very strange time - and I am not back up to full speed yet. Thank you for the support and comments. I will resume normal service as soon as possible.
