Hi Philip,

It wasn’t calling at all when I saw it yesterday. See my previous post re location. It came to my attention because of altercation with Noisy Miners, which has been mentioned by others.

Thanks. Anything on its behaviour, especially calling? I am not sure I can afford to travel that far, on the chance of finding it. But an answer to that might influence me.

Apologies if you’re sick of hearing about Regent Honeyeaters, but I thought the reply to this question was worth copying to the list. I know a lot of people were hoping to see this bird.

Hi Lindsay,

When I saw it yesterday it was in flowering eucs very close to the (dry) dam to the NE of the park just off Aspinall St. Maybe it remembered those flowering trees wherever it went for a day? Yesterday arvo on ebird someone reported seeing it flying high and fast to the west. Evidently it came back this arvo. I’m sure all those good observers this morning didn’t just miss it.

Good luck and Cheers,

Hi Sue

the Park is very large and I spent quite a long while early this morning wandering from flowering tree to the next without success.  Is there a usual spot that it frequents?

Hi All,

If you thought you had missed it, it is back! Has been seen again this afternoon at Justice Hope Park.
