That is an amazing find. I have never seen a tiny bird doing that, let alone perched in foliage. I have only seen relatively big birds going it on the ground where it is easy to see. I wonder who else has seen that. The closest I've seen is the White-fronted Honeyeater at my house 4 years ago that spent most of one very dull cloudy day after we had rain all the previous night, perched high in the bare top of a deciduous tree fluffed up and asleep. (Every other day it was very active.)
