Hi All,

That was my first reaction - a scrawny, maybe young, Rockwarbler. Maybe if he 
spent more time on rocks instead of in trees he'd have a bigger paunch?

Hi David, it looks like a perfectly good Rockwarbler to me - nothing at all 
wrong with your pics either!!

Hi all, I was itting quietly in the Blue Mountains National Park at Pierces 
Pass Picnic Area minding my own business  when I snapped several photos of this 
honeyeater, circa 18 cm in length. What hit me was its very coppery brown 
colour. I thought it might be a Brown Honeyeater but cannot see any yellow 
behind its eye and it seems more "rufously" than the Brown (in my VERY limited 
experience). Any ideas from these rather poor photos? A female something?

Thanks in advance

David Jackson
