Brown Honeyeaters are common around northern and western Australia, reaching just about as far down as Sydney in the east. They are medium-sized (12-16 cm) and active birds. As with many other honeyeaters, their main diet is nectar and insects. Despite their small size, their nests can be parasitised by various cuckoos. The first bird is an adult and the second a juvenile.
