Wonderful photos alady. I take it the Honey Eater has a long tongue to eat honey. Do they also feed on flowers? Woody

They feed on nectar, they love bottle brush (which I presume has a nectar as they are always feeding on them)which is native to Australia, I have bottle brush growing all down my fence lines. They love my fig tree too:-)Heres a shot of the way they get right into these bottle brushbushes.

That's amazing! Thanks for sharing and explaining the eating habits of the Honey eater. By the way...excellent photos of the Rosella. Incredible colors. Your area must be birding Heaven. Please keep them coming. Woody
