But the Yellow-tufted Honeyeater would require a slightly different and coloured cartoon. The joke would be just the same. Indeed you could adapt the cartoon to several species of honeyeaters. Anywhere in the world we can call it a Helmeted Honeyeater. They are different in appearance. The issue is whether we are specifically referring to that subspecies or not and whether we choose to give it a distinctive name. These are large arbitrary decisions and context specific.

Even in Victoria it is still the Yellow-tufted Honeyeater, just with a local name. It is also know as the Helmeted Money-eater down there!
