Any other person out there with a huge interest in
Honeyeaters? for the past few days now, my good friend
Tony has been getting in his native styled garden a
honeyeater, which neither of us can locate in any of
the many good birding books around?

It has a wishy washy pale yellow eye mask with a
black line curled at the end of the line which runs
under each eye and around the back of the head.

A cute song like call of high notes that sounds like
chee-chee-chee-chee-chee? very high pitched.

Main body coloring is similar to a wattlebird but with
pale pinkish color underwing? and no white at all on
the chest or wings.

It's living off of nectar and pollen? very small in
size compared to say a wattlebird and appears to be
alone? about half the body length of a wattlebird in
size. perhaps.

Fast flight in short bursts.

Gorgeous little fella and not that afraid of humans?

Anyone want to have a go at naming it please?
