Honeyeater ? Darwin Wetlands (1 Viewer)


I need to retire! ....oh I have!
United Kingdom
We have just returned from a long non-birding trip to Oz and NZ, but did manage to fit a couple of days in, one was a Wetlands trip near Darwin (Highly recommended by the way!)
at the moment one bird is causing me trouble, I thought it was a Honeyeater of some sort but can't seem to find it in my Bird Guide, I would appreciate any help. It is a heavily cropped photo and the light at the time was bad so apologies.

Thanks in advance

Well-known member.....apparently so ;)
Hi Tom, with that ventral stripe and those undertail coverts your bird is a Mistletoebird
