- Birdline Australia
- Painted Honeyeater. Heard already on 12 September, but did not want to post then because of lack of confirmation. Now my wife has also heard the characteristic call of a Painted Honeyeater at Eulah Creek, 20 km east of Narrabri. Open farm country (paddocks, remnant tree population; NO casuarinas, little mistletoe), wrong type of habitat, but there are lots of flowering eucalypts at this time, plus grevilleas and bottlebrushes in the gardens. First time ever I have heard Painted Honyeaters here in the 7 years we live here. They are usually found 50 km farther west, in brigalow and casuarinas. Tried hard, but no visual ID, no photo both times. Site:Eulah Creek. Observer:Michael Dahlem
Are you submitting a complete checklist of the birds you were able to identify?
