New Holland Honey Eater

Well, it’s Autumn in South Australia and that means that the native gums are blooming. Self-isolating or not, I am awoken early each day to the raucous sound of birds devouring blossoms and it continues until sunset.

One bird that disappeared from our area about 2 years ago and is gradually making its way back, is the New Holland Honey Eater. They are shy but incredibly sociable and love water. I find them so hard to capture as they are fast and easily spooked.
