Another Seymour Mystery - young Magpie Lark?

Also from Seymour Yesterday... This one seems to have a lot in common with a Magpie Lark - but the eye and beak don't quite seem right. Strangely, if it is a magpie lark it seemed to be a little too large for a youngster.

That's a juvenile Blue Faced Honeyeater

Tegan - thanks... this one really had me mystified...  (a bit of a beginner, yeah).  So glad it wasn't a Juv. Magpie Lark - I hadn.t seen a blue faced honeyeater before except in captivity (Healesville Sanctuary) until yesterday. Believe it or not I had photographed a mature bird earlier in the day - and still didn't recognise the juvenile when I saw one!....  Thanks again.. Frank
