In my experience, New Hollands can breed most months of the year, particularly if there's a reliable food source.
At Barren Grounds, for example, New Hollands breed in winter when the banksias are flowering profusely. I remember banding recently fledged birds and adult birds with brood patches in May, June and July.

I just saw a begging juvenile New Holland Honeyeater being fed by both parents(?) at the Botanic Gardens.
As I dont have my guides handy is this breeding record very early or very late? Or do they breed here in winter?
