Honeyeater Galore along Crown Station Road
I had a brief survey along Crown Station Road in Capertee Valley, which leads to a private property. I was stopped at a spot where there were so many honeyeaters calling around, mostly White-plumed Honeyeter (Lichenostomus pecicillatus), White-naped Honeyeater (Melithreptus lunatus) and Fuscous Honeyeater (Lichenostomus fuscus). There was a small puddle along the drain d a flock of these honeyeaters to come down to take a sip. Little Lorikeets were occasiothat had attractenally heard and flew over the tree canopies. This is a place of honeyeater galore - Except that no Regent Honeyeater was heard along this stretch of road. In this spot, White-naped is the most abundant, followed by White-plumed Honeyeater and Fuscous Honeyeater.
