Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater (Acanthagenys rufogularis) (1) Single bird seen 
quietly fossicking in Peppercorn tree.

First time seen in my garden. I was looking at a number of Crimson Rosellas 
noisily feeding amongst the Peppercorns when I spotted a Honey-eater quietly 
moving around the edge of the same tree. After about 10 minutes it obligingly 
came out into the open during short spell of sun between showers.

Location Two Wells Road between Gawler and the Northern Expressway.
