Hi Birders,
Striped Honeyeaters occur south along the NSW coast to Wamberal, which is
just a few kms south of Tuggerah Lakes, otherwidse the southern limit is the
Hunter Valley and then south down the western slopes of the Great Divide. On
the Central Coast they are resident primarily in the casuarinas (Casuarina
glauca) around the edges of the coastal saline lakes and lagoons. They breed
from September onwards in the casuarinas and may have up to 4 clutches per
season raising 2-3, rarely 4 chicks per nesting event. Around Tuggerah Lakes
the nest is usually located close to that of a Grey Butcherbird, and if that
is not available, then a Magpielark. The territories appear to be about 500m
