First sighted in heavily-blossoming tall ironbark on the roadside just below the house at about 0830. Relocated in afternoon around 1645, and again 23 Sep between 0715 and 0800. Not banded. Not vocalising. Sticking mainly to outer clumps of blossom at mid to higher levels. Noticeably more sluggish and stationary than the many Yellow-faceds and White-napeds around it. Slightly 'fluttering' flight and gold tail feathers useful in picking it out in flight, and the overall dark-headed look when initially glimpsed. Seen leaving the trees three times, each time flew south along the creek line at canopy level - there seem to be other eucalypt species in heavy flower behind 124 Hermitage Rd so may be moving between the 2 food sources. Ignored by other species except Red Wattlebirds which harassed it a couple of times. Amazing addition to the home list and the 5th locally new honeyeater sp associated with this flowering event.
