New Holland Honeyeater, Lake Esmond, Canadian, Victoria

Lovely little birds. The New Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae) is a small honeyeater, and there are quite a few here. There is lots of competition for the eucalyptus nectar. And therefore also a few confrontations. In one, a Red Wattlebird (they are aggressive!) chased a Rainbow Lorikeet, but in turn was chased off by one of these little ones!
