Hi all,
Frank Harrison, in his column for the local paper once told the story of an elderly lady who approached him to help her ID a bird - it was a honeyeater he was told, black and white in colour. He went through all the likely possibilities, even though they're all rare vargrants to the local area and eventually, stumped asked as to the approxiamate sizing of these birds - it turned out to be an Australian White Ibis.

Yeah, well, a Bush Stone Honeyeater would be a first for Geelong. Reckon it would take a lot of nectar to fill him each day.  Be like getting honey from a stone.
