White-eared Honeyeater or Lewin's Honeyeater?

I took this shot today of what I think maybe a White-eared Honeyeater. From the pictures I have seen of the Lewins Honeyeaters, the colour behind the eyes is crescent shaped, whereas this one is larger, which is why I'm pointing towards a WCHE.

Thanks Denis for clearing that up. I never heard the call, this was a reflex shot. The bird quite literally flew out of some needle pines, stopped on the branch long enough for me to get the shot and flew off again.
