Blue-faced Honeyeater

Blue-faced Honeyeater
Hastings Street, Noosa, Queensland.

The Blue-faced Honeyeater is a large black, white and golden olive-green honeyeater with striking blue skin around the yellow to white eye. The crown, face and neck are black, with a narrow white band across the back of the neck. The upperparts and wings are a golden olive green, and the underparts are white, with a grey-black throat and upper breast. The blue facial skin is two-toned, with the lower half a brilliant cobalt blue. Juvenile birds are similar to the adults but the facial skin is yellow-green and the bib is a lighter grey. This honeyeater is noisy and gregarious, and is usually seen in pairs or small flocks. It is known as the Banana-bird in tropical areas, for its habit of feeding on banana fruit and flowers.

Thanks Les. Nice to know you are in Coomera :-) You are right, these birds are very quick. This one was in a very urban environment and is used to picking up scraps from the cafe/restaurant across the street. The cables on the tree are night lights.
