Red Wattle Honey Eater Spring
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Birds are more frequent visitors now that spring has arrived.|
View of a red wattle honeyeater. The birds diet consists mainly of nectar from native trees, however they often seek nectar from flower beds in suburban gardens. The Red Wattle Bird also eats a variety of insects (often caught mid air) and some fruit. It forages mostly in the middle to upper foliage of eucalypt and banksia trees and occasionally it feeds on the ground or in undergrowth.
Habitat: The Red Wattle Bird inhabits Eucalypt forests, open woodlands, suburban parks and gardens in southern Australian mainland states near the coast. It is usually seen in small groups at Bushy Park Wetlands and often in the company of other honeyeaters.
Flight: Swift with rapid wing beats. Shows white tips on wing and tail feathers.
