eastern white-cheeked honeyeater

Posted on

P1080967

White-cheeked Honeyeaters are around 16-19cm and this eastern variety has a fan-shaped white cheek patch. They are very fast and camouflage themselves amoung the flowering banksia trees. They enjoy this area with its woodlands and thick undergrowth and will make nests out of cups of grass and twigs in low bushes and lay 2-3 spotted and blotched pinkish eggs.
