|Subject:||possible juvenile Scarlet Honeyeater|
|Date:||Wed, 01 Oct 2008 15:35:30 +0800|
during a walk in the Field of Mars (East Ryde, Sydney) this afternoon, I came across a very small honeyeater. My guess is juvenile Scarlet Honeyeater, which have been recorded in the reserve before. Im still not a 100% sure its a Scarlet Honeyeater so I would appreciate people's oppinions.
Here are the details:
Small dark-brown honeyeater - approx: 9-12cm.
Slightly curved, black bill - approx: 2cm.
Dark-brown wings and slightly lighter brown breast, with reddish patches around forehead and eye.
Was hopping around in dead casurina, made occasional squeak, but was otherwise silent.
If any one wants any further details please ask.
Thanks in advance, regards...
