Some years ago my wife and I had Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters on the Blackdown
Tablelands try to take hair from our heads and in my case from my beard
also. I think there were two birds involved and that it occurred in the same
area on the outward and return walks.
About six years ago at nearly 1 000 metres on the southern Atherton
Tablelands I was relieving myself at the edge of a rarely used track when a
Mountain Thornbill detached itself from a mixed feeding flock and attempted
to glean in my beard. I was highly amused and only a little hurt by the
insult to my personal hygiene.
