This morning while suveying on properties along Burrinjuck Road, flocks of 10-30 YFHE were on the move - quite surprising given that most of them were seen when we were in fog or under heavy cloud.  They were going in all directions but were most intent on following rows of trees.

To my amazement – out to measure the rainfall and look for earthquake damage (none) – overhead out of the fog – hundreds of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, and some larger birds that  I assume to be Red Wattlebirds.  I could not see any differences in smaller honeyeaters crossing as the light was not good, but by their voices, the sounds was varied.

Can someone please give me an idea of how to differentiate the sounds of Yellow-faced from White-naped Honeyeaters please?
