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.
