Blue Faced Honeyeater

Fauna, The Scoop

You may have noticed the change in birds in your backyard or neighbourhood with the
change in seasons and flowering plants.

I have noticed many honeyeaters out searching for and enjoying nectar plants such as
banksia and grevilia. This Blue-faced Honeyeater is a spectacular bird of about 30cm long,
olive green flight feathers, a loud call, and great acrobatic skills when feeding on our native
nectar-providing plants.

The Blue-faced Honeyeater is common in grassy woodlands, but you will also see them in
urban bushland reserves.
