New bird of the week, found after spending an hour in the banksia bushland near the beach here. I stayed as still as possible, creeping from tree to tree when necessary, watching all the little birds darting about. One of my favourites, a Grey Fantail, came close several times, but I could not capture him. However the more I watch the more possible it will be next time! I had turned for home when this beauty sat right in front of me on a low branch beside the path. He stayed for at least a minute, so there was no excuse for missing 🙂 Here is the White-eared Honeyeater, (Lichenostomus leucotis) feeding on nectar from a Banksia integrifolia flower.
