   disappeared over a small rise and was not relocated.

   Blue-faced Honeyeater Hawker Oval
   Looking for the Blue-faced Honeyeater as reported by Peter Christian
   yesterday, and after a long wait (at around 10:30am) the bird appeared,
   and foraged for around 10 minutes in the far side of the ironbark. It
   called as it flew off, but could not be relocated. Poor photo attached.
   With Steve Wallace and Lyndon.

   obvious blue area around eye, black crown, white nape, black lower face
   and a black bib separated from head by white malar stripes. Upperparts
   bright olive green and underparts white. Watched for about 20 minutes
   around 8.30 in the morning. Heard to call 3-4 times only.
