Notes to readers of this Blog


Thank you for dropping by to check out my blog. You will see a lot of other Blogs about birds I follow down the left hand side. I strongly encourage you to check some of these out as well, they are entertaining and I love to see birds from all over the world, I hope you do too.

Honeyeaters of the Top End

Even though I didn't manage to see all of the available birds, I did manage to get some photos of the ones I did see.

After being confused about the White-gaped and the Dusky Honeyeater, this year I was lucky enough to see both at the same time, at very close range, and the size difference was very obvious. The coppery-brown colour of the Dusky can be stunning, and a lot quieter than the sometimes noisy White-gaped Honeyeater.

Then there were the Rufous-throated Honeyeater and Rufous-banded  Honeyeater.
