CommentA bird of the arid and semi-arid regions of Australia, the White-fronted Honeyeater occurs in eucalypt woodlands, mallee heathlands and other forms of shrublands. Feeding primarily on nectar, it also consumes a variety of insects and some seeds. Nomadic by necessity, following rain and blossoming trees and shrubs, these honeyeaters will turn up to breed, when opportunity knocks. They are very fond of the flowers of the Emu Bush and grevilleas, and in some habitats mistletoes are an important food source. During the breeding period, they form small territories only, as pairs often nest close to one another. Endemic to Australia, the species is widely distributed across the continent, bypassing only the northernmost parts, the wet, eastern forests and Tasmania. Especially the largely intact Great Western Woodlands of WA is of major importance to this (and other) species, as suitable habitat elsewhere is shrinking or becoming inapt. Reynoldson Reserve, Wongan Hills. Status: Least Concern
