Honeyeaters at Ivy Cottage video
Once again these are white cheeked and macleay's honeyeaters. They are tucking into leftovers. In the second video the light is just terrible but at least it gives you a feel for the numbers of birds that come in. The reference to "vicious rainforest birds" is a long standing family joke. It refers to a sign that was outside an aquarium on Magnetic Island many years ago encouraging passers by to come in and see "the feeding frenzy of the vicious reef sharks". When you went in, you found the sharks they were referring to were all little baby black tip reef sharks, mostly about 12 inches long. Tiny and not what I expected at all. LOL.
