Went back to the site with the camera this afternoon and discovered that it was 
a pair. Fingers crossed that they breed!

Date: Sunday, October 6, 2013

Location: 300m east of Warnes's Scrub

Black Honeyeater (Certhionyx niger) (1) A single juvenile bird, and only the 
second time I have seen these birds on our property. I found it in my father's 
Eremophila collection which is about a three acre block that is full of 
flowering natives at the moment.

White-fronted Honeyeater (Phylidonyris albifrons) (4) Heard them before I found 
them. I saw at least four different birds, but there may be more there. This is 
my first sighting of these birds on our property. Tried unsuccessfully for a 
decent photograph for nearly an hour, but as you can see I didn't get one.

Great to see all those different birds around at the moment. Not sure what is 
going to turn up next.
