New Holland Honeyeater

The New Holland Honeyeater is an active bird, and rarely sits still long enough to give an extended view. Sexes are similar in looks, but females are slightly smaller in size. Young birds are browner and have a grey eye.

It is fuelled up on high-energy nectar taken from the flowers of banksias, eucalypts, grevilleas and other trees and shrubs, so it is always on the move.

We saw so many of these stunning birds in the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens
