I photographed a bird which looks exactly like a Yellow White-eye (confirmed by 
second opinion) on the morning of 22 Feb at Sawtell NSW while photographing 
Yellow Thornbills.   The location was within 100m of the lower car park of 
Boambee Lookout on the footpath to the top car park, on the right (south) side 
of the path.   Unfortunately I haven't yet the know-how to share the photo via 
a link but I can send it via e-mail attachment.  Since the location  is a long 
way outside the range for Yellow White-eyes, could it be anything else?  Could 
it be an escapee?  Are Yellow White-eyes kept as cage birds?
