White-eared Honeyeater

After weeks of trying I finally managed to get a photo of this little White-eared Honeyeater. On the few occasions I have seen it around it has always been deep in the bushes.

Lovely little bird ...  I'm glad it popped out of the bushes for you to get a pic.

Gorgeous photo. Do they have blue eyes like the Lewin's Honeyeater?

I wish I could say it was planned, but it was sheer luck! I just happened to be getting my camera from the car, and spotted it before it saw me and I managed to get two photos. It was looking away from me in the other photo and it's head was not visible.
