Hi Chris,

Has your friend ruled out the possibility of a young Crescent Honeyeater?
About a decade ago there was a claim of Brown Honeyeater in South Western
Victoria. I was down that way and checked it out and came across juvenile
Crescents which I must admit I did think looked surprisingly similar to

While one wouldn't expect Crescent or Brown Honeyeater in the Riverland, but
Crescents are found closer than Browns and they do demonstrate some winter
movement, so they would be more likely, but as we've seen a lot lately,
birds can turn up anywhere.
