Oh, it is hard to -hide how pleased I am about taking pictures of this bird. Beautiful coloration, the outer ring of eyes in rich blue and olive wing feathers make a unique composition. This Honeyeater’s look in close-up seems to be of a predator, although in fact it is not a bird of prey. It feeds on nectar and fruit and invertebrates. It is a friendly bird and rarely attacks and feeds on other animals. I met them a few times, but I thought that individuals with a green eye rim were different species. It often happened in Australia that the differences in the appearance of birds that I saw as small ones meant another species. In this case they turned out to be just juveniles of this species. Their appearance did not correspond with the English name the Blue Faced Honeyeater. In Australia there is a great number of birds and to recognize them for the visitor from Europe it is a really hard work. In the atlas purchased in Australia there are 850 species of birds described. Besides herons, great egret, common cattle egret, cormorant all species seem exotic, and it is impossible to recognize them and memorize in few days. Cataloguing and verification of the photographed species after arriving lasted two weeks, and without the help of Hans (thanks for your patience and quick email responses) probably would take even longer. Coming back to my blue-faced honeyeaters I have to admit that I am proud of this part of my gallery. The photo session of a few adult blue-faced honeyeaters amidst of giant red blossoms created a colorful gem of my Australian collection. These honeyeaters are a medium-sized birds. Their wingspan is about 40 centimeters, and the weight is about 110 grams.
