g'day all,
Re John's posting of various honeyeaters at Barham (NSW)
2 weeks ago I visited Lawn Hill N.P. (248km km NNW of Mount Isa) which had Qld Centenary celebrations over that weekend.
Banded Honeyeaters also decided to have a get together. They were flitting around every Bloodwood tree, and there are lots of Bloodwoods adjacent to the parks walking trails.
Perhaps one in ten were in juvenal plumage, which tricked me as the breast band was often extremely feint and the ear coverts were a solid bright yellow.
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
