New Holland Honeyeater
Phylidonyris novaehollandiae

A smart-looking honeyeater which is moderately common across large parts of Australia. They often feed on nectar from Banksia flowers, which their long beaks enable them to feed from the deep flowers. They are quite similar to the White-cheeked Honeyeater (to which they are closely related) and are most easily differentiated by the white eye and arrangement of white facial patches. 18 cm.
