A single White-fronted Honeyeater was observed this morning from 8.30 -
(at least) 10.30 and finally at 17.00 tonight high in the canopy on the
edge of the forest at the south end of the park, between Bulimba Ck and
the forest trail entrance. Look for the metal box on the short pole
numbered 269 beside the Gas pipeline sign and check out the canopy from
there. It appeared to favour two or three tress at that point, but did
move further into the forest at times. This bird was in company with
Scarlet Honeyeaters and aggressively chased them from the canopy.
Sightings were difficult but patience rewarded - it disappeared for up
to an hour at a time, but returned to the same two or three trees.
Photos have been taken but are proving difficult to publish currently.
Observed by Rob Dougherty, Stuart Warren, Andy Jensen and Stuart
Pickering. Most of us with previous experience of this species
If more info is required will be happy to assist any interested parties
