Dear Ausbirders

Camping in Innes NP at the tip of Yorke Penninsula last weekend I was
delighted to be woken by the din of Purple-gaped Honeyeaters exploiting the
flowering Eucalyptus diversifolia.  Talking of obscure vernacular names
this latter is known as Soap Mallee????!

Anyway for an easterner it was very exciting to see this species of
Honeyeater as the commonest bird in the neighbourhood.


P.S. No vinyards in sight!
