My favourite Honeyeater

The Spinebills have arrived at home. Yay.

These are an alltime favourite honeyeater of mine.

Lovely shots Doug, I have only seen these guys are a couple of times down in the deep south of WA

Dont take life too seriously, it never ends well

Thanks Laza.

The main difference between the Eastern and Western Spinebills is the Western has a pale belly and a rufous collar and they are restricted to the SW corner of WA.

I am also waiting to get a good shot of a spine bill in Albury.

Nice shots Dog.

Just saw these guys for the first time this year over the weekend. Such zippy little birds.

Couldn't agree more, love these little birds!  Great shots Doug, especially love the third one with the light dusting of lunch on his head and beak.
