Interesting observation.  When I was at Broulee a month ago, there were many
flowering eucalypts (sp?) and honeyeaters were in profusion.  I counted
eleven HE species in a fairly contained area probably including at least 100

The most interesting species was the White-cheeked HE.  I sometimes (and not
very often) see one or at best two and have never before heard them call,
but that day there were more than two and they were quite vocal.

There are alaways differences between seasons but I have been struck by a
lack of flowering eucalypts this winter.  No sign of anything from the usual
suspects such as E. cinerea and E. sideroxylon that have been hosting flocks
of small honeyeaters in recent winters.

All I have seen flowering this winter are E. microcarpa (Limestone
Avenue) and these have been devoid of small honeyeaters. Anyone else know of
anything flowering in town?
