I think that this might be a Brown Honeyeater, taken at Oxley Creek Common in Brisbane.

Cheers

It looks very pale for a Brown Honeyeater but the markings are right. Probably you have a different, paler race than up here in the north. They are very common up here, and a bit drab, so not often photographed.

I thought this was a Brown Honeyeater, late at night and not thinking straight, and as Ulrike pointed out, it's actually a White-gaped Honeyeater.

Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

This one's a juvenile I happened to get a few days ago. It'll get the creamy yellow triangle behind the eye like yours and lose some of the yellowish gape when itbecomes adult. They are very common up here, and a bit drab, so not often photographed.

Are you sure this isn’t a white-gaped honeyeater?

Duh! You know what Ulrike, you're quite right. I don't know what I was thinking. I thought something didn't look right for a Brown (which of course are a lot smaller than White-gapeds as well).:oops:

Well, whoever named the brown honeyeater must have been thinking of a different bird, most likely the white-gaped one as that looks a lot more brown ;-)a

A couple of the more common birds at Oxley Creek Common, the Willie Wagtail and the Grey Fantail.

Hi all, been a while since i've had a chance to post here. Left home at the beginning of Feb and currently in Nth Qld so ive got a bit to catch up on. Signal is patchy at best once you get away form the major areas.

Anyway, we've currently Id over 300 birds since leaving home but unfortunately haven't been able to photograph them all. Still i've got a few nice shots.

I have been chasing some of our Grasswrens and have captured 4 of the 13 species so far. Hoping to get another 2 or 3 before we get home in November.

Anyway here's a couple of Dusky Grasswrens from King's Canyon, NT. These little fellas live in the gorges among the rocks and spinifex

welcome back Russel and what a way to announce your post. These really are beautiful.
That top one especially so.

I was actually just looking around at our Aussie contributors from past days and here you are posting a few minutes later :-)
