Today in the Sunshine Coast hinterland at Moy Pocket I had the three
mainland species of Melithreptus honeyeater - Black-chinned, White-naped and
White-throated - feeding together in eucalyptus trees.

There can not be very many places where this is possible; I'd like to hear
from anyone who has seen the three together. Black-chinned in particular is
rare in south-east Queensland.
