Birds in a Fig Tree

During our last Wader Count we noticed that the Fig Tree where we park had lots of fruit, and there were lots of birds coming and going. No sooner had we gotten out of the car we noticed there were Mistletoebird,  Lewin's Honeyeater,
White-throated Honeyeater and Mangrove Honeyeater, all very busy having a feed in the tree.
Lewin's Honeyeater (Meliphaga lewinii)
Mistletoebird (Dicaeum hirundinaceum)

White-throated Honeyeater (Melithreptus albogularis)
For more birds visit Wild Bird Wednesday.
