At Bundeena for several days I travelled along Jibbon Beach to Port Hacking 
Head and watched in amazement as thousands of yellow faced honeyeaters heading 
south wards.

Many paused briefly on treetops before before joining the continual procession 
which seemed uninterrupted for the 90 minutes I was there. Trying hard, I could 
not identify any other type of honeyeater in this mass movement of birds.

As a matter of interest would some member of the intelligentsia kindly advise 
if the yellow faced is actually the most numerous Australian honeyeater species.
