Black and gold are the colours of the "Regent" (person appointed to
administer kingdom during the absence or incapacity of the monarch).  Thank
goodness for the name change, other wise I'd be known as the Warty-faced
Honeyeater Recovery Coordinator (or would that simply be the warty-faced
Honeyeater Recovery Coordinator?).

The Albury example gives us great hope that the (now tens of) thousands of
trees planted at Regent Honeyeater sites will provide habitat that will
support this, and other woodland, species sooner rather than later.  There
have now been over 85 000 trees and shrubs planted in the Lurg area (near
Benalla, north-east Victoria) alone.  The volunteer Operations Group in the
Capertee Valley (central NSW) are working very hard to catch up.
