In general your observation sounds right. (I don’t do bird photography). Given opportunities, they will easily attend provided feeders. I certainly recall flocks at easily photographable height at Healesville Sanctuary outside Melbourne. Though that is a long way to go and a very old memory. ..... Also of course most small honeyeaters are very active and that is an additional challenge. Also according to the COG Atlas, this is the time of year when the recording rate for the species is at its lowest.

Hi all,


Is there any recommended sites for a close-up observation of white-naped honeyeater? As these little guys prefer to live on tree tops, it may be too hard to take photographs of them. I saw them foraging and singing on the canopy of tall trees in botanical garden several times, however, always felt helpless and ended up with nothing gained.


Best Regards
