CommentSpiny-cheeked Honeyeaters were one of the most abundant species at Kirkalocka Station at the time of our visit. Of these, most were first immature birds easily identified by their grey-blue iris and yellow barbs with white shafts on the cheek. Juveniles have a brown iris and prominent yellow ear coverts. Adult birds have a grey-blue iris and distinctive white spines on the cheek (no yellow). We have few images of immature birds in the BLP library, some of which are erroneously identified as 'adult'.
EquipmentCanon 1Dx II + 600 mm f/4 III + 1.4x III extender, hand-held. Manual, partial metering, AI Servo spot AF, f/5.6, 1/1600 sec, ISO 1250. Processed using DPP4 and PSE14 with Neat Image plug-in.
LocationKirkalocka Station, Murchison, Western Australia
