I spent 45 minutes observing migrating honeyeaters yesterday between 11 and 11:45 under the Tralee/Jerrabomberra flyway.  In that time around 2500 honeyeaters passed over me. I took a series of about 50 photos, mainly to get a handle on flock composition, which was interesting.  Some flocks were made up of almost entirely Yellow-faced while other flocks were almost entirely White-naped.  Overall about one third were White-naped.  A couple of interesting asides were a single Eastern Spinebill in one flock while another flock of about 60 honeyeaters included a somewhat bewildered looking Eastern Rosella.
