The comments re. Blue-faced Honeyeater being related to the Melithreptus honeyeaters is interesting.  While working on the species and producing a 'Bird in the Hand' item for the Corella journal I always considered them to be 'mega-melithreptus'.  It is nice to know that the genetics supports this view.
