We, no doubt like many or you, regularly see Eastern spinebills around our 
grevilleas.  It was most interesting during our recent trip to south-west WA to 
see the Western spinebill, and to compare them with the species with which we 
are more familiar.  Attached are a pic of the Western, at Margaret River, and 
one of the Eastern taken this arvo here in Ainslie. (We also saw Western 
rosellas in WA, again an interesting comparison with our Eastern species.)
