White-naped honeyeater (Melithreptus lunatus)

The White-naped honeyeater is found in forests and woodland in south and eastern Australian and in the far southwest of WA. Usually a hyperactive inhabitant of the canopy – the birds filmed here were taking a morning bath. The red eyebrow is a distinctive feature of this species. Filmed near Canberra where it is a common bird; especially in more humid forests in the ranges during the warmer months of the year. It moves northeasterly towards the coast for winter.
