Hi Mike,
White-plumed Honeyeaters are certainly common at the site but I grew up with them in our local area (Woolooware in southern Sydney) and have had plenty of experience with them inland so I don’t think that it is the culprit, but it could be.

Hello Greg
Is it possible your bird might have been a white-plumed honeyeater? There have been occasions of late where I too have asked myself the same question about that "chop, chop" call, which I would normally associate with a yellow robin. I am hearing that call -or something very like it- in places where I shouldn't be (outside of yellow robin range) and the only candidate I can come up with is the white-plumed honeyeater.
Often the call is heard very first thing in the morning -which is typical of EYRO at certain times of the year- when it is still not light enough to see anything and therefore makes it a little difficult to chase up and confirm.
