I had the pleasure of being in Townsville for a few days until yesterday. Yesterday morning I had a quick (unfortunately) visit to Townsville Common Conservation Park where I saw 53 species in  a short time without much of a look at any of the wetter areas. I am certain that I saw Black Honeyeaters, albeit females only, on two separate occasions - one from  a distance and the second a group of three from no more than 2 metres away ( I was in the company of 2 NZ birders at this stage and they were unsure of their Aust Honeyeaters but tended to agree with my observation after referencing Pizzey and Knight). By the time I reacted and tried to focus the digicam - gone. I note they a listed among the rare to occasional visitors to this neck of the woods and was wondering does anyone have a decent photo of the female Black Honeyeater that I can compare.
