White-cheeked Honeyeater.

This White-cheeked Honeyeater was feeding on a Banksia flower in the car park at Seary's Creek the other week when we were down that way. They are one of the common Honeyeaters found in our Heathland areas.

I would love to have these birds at a carpark near us!

Great job at photographing them, Neil!

Neil said...

Thanks Arija I think they were more interested on feeding than watching me.
Thanks Bob & Cynthia I wish the car park was a bit closer.
