Eastern Spinebill

Eastern Spinebill (Image ID 46846)
CommentA great environment for a honeyeater is the correa bush. It proviides a great source of food (pollen) and it also provides a protective environment where the honeyeater can "disappear" into the thick bush and evade any predators. My challenge was to get a shot of a honeyeater feeding. I have seen plenty of birds on and in the correa, but to get close to one when its feeding in another story. I was fortunate that Eastern Spinebills ,when feeding, tend not to be as skittish as they normally are and was able to get reasonably close to one feeding.
