New Holland Honeyeater

New Holland Honeyeater

A familiar sight from Belinda’s garden. New Hollands are aggressive, ubiquitous, often annoying, and bad news for the smaller birds they do their best to drive out, but when you set aside your dislike, they are strikingly handsome creatures. This is a typical arrogant New Holland pose: right out in the open where it can keep a sharp eye out for interlopers.
