There are lots of Blue-faced Honeyeaters around here but I normally capture them while head down drinking nectar from native flowers and it was nice to see one from the front with the brown breast patch. This adult (young have green eye skin)  was sitting in a She-oak that grows opposite my bedroom/study window and I was able to capture him while it was having a look about safely hidden in a cave of She-oak needles. The She-oaks are one of my favourite trees, not only are they soft and beautiful to look at each needle producers oxygen and they are one of the highest CO2 to oxygen trees on the planet.
