Hi All,
This afternoon I saw a very common Perth bird, the Brown Honeyeater, perched on a barbed wire fence. What is unusual is that I rarely see this bird perched on such artificial or man made structures, unlike the other two very common Perth honeyeaters, the Singing and Red-Wattlebird.
It may have something to do with its aversion to finding food on the ground, as the other two species are often seen on the ground searching for food.
I would be interested to know if Brown Honeyeaters in the other parts of Australia also show this reluctance to perch on man made structures.
Best Regards   Wynton Maddeford
