Hello Peter, a quick check for the species distribution in the Atlas of Victorian Wildlife database shows all the recent Victorian records occurring in the southern end (?) of Hattah-Kulkyne National Park.

The old Atlas of Victorian Birds (1987) says the following (in part).

'Grey-fronted Honeyeaters feed from foliage, flowers and bark of eucalypts, in the air and occasionally from the ground.'

There are very few records of the species in Victoria so be sure to forward any sightings you make to the Atlas.

cheers, Martin
