The regent honey eaters are in my bottle brush again today.   There are at least four.   Two have the classic colouration with the red warty skin around the eye.   The immature one is much browner, with no obvious marks around its eye, and it is being fed by another bird which is like the other adults, except that the warts around its eye are yellow, not red.   Can anyone tell me whether this is a younger bird, or maybe a female?
I simply cannot leave my computer this morning!   Right at this moment I can see four different honeyeaters with one glance.   The full list for this morning in the bottle brush is as follows (About half an hour's watching)
Regent honeyeater
New Holland honeyeater
Noisy friarbird
Noisy miner
Yellow-faced honeyeater
White-plumed honeyeater
Brown honeyeater
Eastern spinebill
Superb fairy wren 
Red browed finch
Can anyone better this?
Cheers Annabel
