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.
Here are some of my photos. First the honeyeaters –
Lots of Wattlebirds at Chiltern
I think the ones with less red on them are juveniles.
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 –
Male above and female below
Like last time, this one is collecting nesting material. It was in a different location.
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.
