Sun 16 Oct Dusky Honeyeater Cloudbreak minesite, Pilbara, Western Australia
Being new to Oz I can only go by the textbooks, this bird seems well out of its given range? (Ed comment: This represents a huge range extension, with the Dusky H/E only previously being reported in WA in the Kununurra and Drysdale River areas in July and August 2011. Prior to this there were only unconfirmed reports of Dusky H/E in WA)
