Hi All,
After searching many sites over the years for Painted Honeyeater, we finally 
got onto one today!

Our report for Birdline-Vic is as follows:

At least 2, possibly 3 birds calling infequently around Picnic Area, but 
frustratingly chased and harassed by White-plumed Honeyeaters each time we 
would just about get onto one (a lifer for the four of us!!), until just before 
we left, when a sole bird sat out on a dead branch for a few minutes, giving 
good views!!

Sadly, only managed 'reference' photos, as we had to get out of the way of a 
4WD and large Caravan which had got 'stuck' in the Picnic area.
