 I'd be interested to know if anyone's come across yellow-faced honeyeaters in abundance anywhere close to inner-city Sydney.
I found one last week foraging on a small eucalypt just behind the rollercoaster at the back of Luna Park, Milsons Point (alonside the officeblock at 6 Deng St) - I guess a wayward southern migrant. This otherwise treeless half-acre lot of weeds and vines supports numerous bulbuls, superb fairy wrens, white-browed scrubwrens, silvereye and the odd red wattlebird. The red wattlebirds can occasionally be heard in busy Walker St, feeding on generous balcony planters. Across the harbour in Sussex St, there are blackbirds in and around a tiny neglected overgrown lot (near the corner Erskine St).
