The following morning I was awake very early but couldn't find any milk. Not wanting to disturb Alex and June I thought I'd walk along to the local garage and get some there... also I wanted to see if I could find that pesky Gilbert's (or Swan River) Honeyeater that had been in the forecourt a couple of days before.

On the way I spotted this New Holland Honeyeater up on the telegraph wires. For those that don't know, Tasman gave the continent of Australia the name of New Holland, and the name has stuck for this little Honeyeater.

White-cheeked Honeyeater is similar but has dark eyes.
