Honeyeater Behaviours

Behaviour Notes

The Australian Garden in the Royal Botanical Gardens, Cranbourne attracts many species that feed on native plants. I photographed a male scarlet myzomela here, apparently a rare visitor being east of its normal range together the common New Holland honeyeater and little wattlebird. Townsville Common in Queensland was a real surprise with many species to photograph.

Tui is a common aggressive New Zealand species with an unmistakeable vocal call. I photographed two in aerial combat, I assume one was defending a feeding territory.
