I originally thought this was a Yellow-spotted Honeyeater because of the
relatively straight mandible and dark eye, but the narrow gape line under
the eye makes me wonder if it might actually be a Graceful Honeyeater. Also
the lack of evident streaking on the breast favors Graceful. Unfortunately
I have no record of its vocalizations. Comparison with online photos has
reached a dead-end partly because I lack confidence in the identity of many
of the posted online images.

Any helps would be much appreciated.
