More Honeyeaters from Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park – 1 August 2018

I returned to the Chiltern Trail at Ingleside to attempt to get better photos of some of the Honeyeaters I had seen on my previous trip. On that occasion, I had got a nice series of photos of Spotted Pardalotes taking nesting materials into their nest hole, and I had seen a lot of honeyeaters – but only had poor photos of some of them.

Eastern Spinebill

Here are some of my photos. First the honeyeaters –

Red Wattlebird

Little Wattlebird

Lots of Wattlebirds at Chiltern

White-naped Honeyeater

Yellow-faced Honeyeater

Scarlet Honeyeater

I think the ones with less red on them are juveniles.

Fuscous Honeyeater

Eastern Spinebill

White-cheeked Honeyeater

These birds look very much like New Holland Honeyeaters but have a large white check patch like their name suggests.

New Holland Honeyeater

I think this bird is sitting on the rare and threatened Angophora crassifolia.

And some of the other birds –

Golden Whistler

Spotted Pardalote

Like last time, this one is collecting nesting material. It was in a different location.

Striated Thornbill


Variegated Fairy-wren

So it was another good day to in the bush photographing these beautiful birds. I am sure there are a lot more interesting birds still to photograph in this part of the national park.
