I'd be interested to know if anyone's come across yellow-faced
honeyeaters in abundance anywhere close to inner-city Sydney.

Oddly enough, I had my first y-f honeyeater in our back yard in Bexley
last week.  It shot into view two metres from me over the fish-pond, and
then perched in the oak-tree, listened when I whistled to it, but only
long enough to ascertain I was not the real thing, and then took off,
heading NW.  But a first sighting in  backyard is hardly an 'abundance',
of course!
