    Just to show you how busy that water trough could be, here we have three species - Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater, Brown-headed Honeyeater and Yellow-plumed Honeyeater. Sometimes it was even busier than this LOL

    Ignoring

    But not for long, for the next picture the miner was giving the angriest look beak wide open, as if to say "Get off" LOL So a rest from my Lifers today, with two I've encountered before, Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater and Yellow-throated Miner

    After many kilometers driving that sandy road, we arrived at a hide. There were quite a few Spiny-cheeked Honeyeaters lining up in a tree close to the water bath.

    First rays

    The next morning, before breakfast, I found a Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater in the hedge in front of my cabin. He seemed to be enjoying the first rays of the sun which really was barely over the horizon. It rather played games with my exposure... had to work a bit to correct it LOL

    A new honeyeater for me, but I was to see many more of them over the next few weeks. A Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater landed on the far bank, which was some distance off, so I'm pleased with how this camera coped.

    In a tree on the edge of the open bit where the gorgeous chats were feeding, I spotted a Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater watching the goings-on. No day in Oz is complete without at least one honeyeater, is it LOL

    I'd seen both these species before, but never in the same place, so never before got them in the same frame. You'd think there was enough room at the water trough for them to drink at the same time, wouldn't you.

    We finally made it to Gluepot, parked the car and wandered round to the hide. There in front of us were some trees and below a long, narrow water trough..... and birds.... and more birds!! Flitting in and out landing on the trough, back to the trees. It was just non-stop activity and took me a...

    We had another superb meal in the restaurant the previous night!! I did my usual wander around pre-breakfast the next day to see what was in the bushes around the cabins and caught this Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater as an early feeder (the sun was barely over the horizon)!

    Just at the edge of the shrub that had the adult Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater, was a youngster. He's developing the yellow belly, but not the facial 'spines' etc yet.

    A nice re-acquaintance with a Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater, for I'd first seen these all those weeks ago at the Bowra back dam. He came to feed in the same stretch of shrubs as the Singing Honeyeater... birding was easy at this table LOL. Nice birds.

    Another old friend turned up at the dam for a drink - a Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater. Not the closest of the birds, as he was on the far left bank but my camera seemed to cope not too badly.

    This is a very young bird, my books don't have a picture of it and I had to rely on a local guide to id for me.
