CommentI have submitted this image because it shows some of the key ID points separating this species from the very similar and co-existing Graceful Honeyeater. The outline of the lower mandible is almost straight or concave up in contrast to Graceful concave down. The bill is also more stout than the finer down-curved bill of Graceful. The yellow gape is extended below the eye by a line of yellow plumage whereas in Graceful this extension is noticeably finer and a paler tone making a marked contrast with the yellow gape. This view also shows the faint streaking on the breast and there is no evidence of a pale yellow mid-line running down to the belly as in Graceful. The individual in this image is ssp mixta which ranges from around Cooktown south to Halifax Bay and Mt Elliot.
