Backyard Honeyeaters

About mid-morning most days, the bird bath becomes a popular spot with the small birds. Most are quite small, but all have one thing in common: they are extremely quick.

The following photo is of a White-plumed Honeyeater which is a first on my backyard birding list. I have seen these birds in other places, but I’m pleased to see it in my backyard.
