|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Blue Faced Honeyeater is a striking bird. They are relatively common in Northern NSW and Queensland but I have never seen one where I live in Southern NSW. |
I was delighted to see this one and took a series of photos of him as he foraged for food. He prised under the bark of the trees he was on with his strong beak looking for insects. He is one of the largest of the honeyeaters found in Australia.

Nice bark on the tree :) unfortunitly the Honeyeater is not quitee sharp enough. No doubt it was not co-operating !!

Wecome to TN, I know it is long past time, but then I am always late. And eapecially welcome to a fellow birder, so now you know why I shoot birds as well, for "id" purposes lol
Nice note and pic, together, they teach us something about your birdies Down Under. You can crop much closer than you have her, loose a lot of the space on the left. Also, use a smaller f-stop, f2.8 is for very nead, your dof is too shallow. A bit of fill flash would also help to give a bit of detail in the plumage.
