Hello All,

I travelled out to Durikai State Forest over the weekend for the second time since moving up to Queensland from South Australia, the other visit being only a few months previous. This visit proved no less impressive than the first as far as honeyeaters are concerned. Anyone planning to go out there should have a great time, for the area had recieved rain on the weekend also and many of the eucs. are in flower or about to.

All these honeyeater species were recorded:

White-eared Honeyeater
White-naped Honeyeater
Brown-headed Honeyeater
Yellow-faced Honeyeater
Striped Honeyeater
Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater
Fuscous Honeyeater
Yellow-tufted Honeyeater
Scarlet Honeyeater
Brown Honeyeater

Other, larger honeyeaters alos present were:
Noisy Friarbird
Little Friarbird
Noisy Miner

*Unfortunately, dipped out on the white-plumed and black-chinned on this occasion. What a place!!! At a guess, nectar-feeders must comprised almost one third of the entire list, maybe more, with the Little, Scaly-breasted and Rainbow also recorded.

All The Best,
Michael Wood
