G'day all

I see Black-chinned Honeyeaters occasionally in the Grampians -
particularly in Red Gum woodland.  I hear them more often than see them
however.  Their call is distinctive once learned and carries quite long
distances.  The birds are usually quite high in the canopy and in
smaller numbers than White-naped or Brown-headed.  My records are mainly
from just north of Dunkeld and in the open forest west of Cherrypool but
these are also two areas I visit most often.

Nice birds and easily picked from the White-naped Honeyeaters - more
easily than the field guide pictures would suggest anyway.
