A fine picture. Any idea of the sort of bird this might be?
Aussie: Little Friarbird Philemon citreogularis This is a male honey eater and he's in a Grevillea attracted by the nectar. Except for a bottle brush there were no bird bird attracting trees/shrubs in the garden when I arrived just over 3 years ago so I promptly planted 5 different types because they attract such a variety of birds.
Fine picture of a handsome bird Aussie.

I can see the 'mouth' so long for to get the honey out of the flowers.
A wonderful bird, I love the background.
He's a welcome little visitor I expect. A fine shot Aussie

With that fierce looking beak, it will eat the whole flower. Great shot.
