Hello Gordon,

On my website, picture number 623212D shows Grey-fronted Honeyeaters 
admonishing one of their own. Curious behaviour because those involved become 
preoccupied and less aware of their surroundings and so more vulnerable (and 
obvious!) to predators. I managed to get a dozen or so pictures at the time and 
at one stage there were more birds on top but this was the best picture - 
always difficult with several birds to get everyone looking at the camera! It's 
hard enough with humans!       (attached is one of the less successful pics)
