Great record! I haven't seen one in Canberra for over 40 years.

Still yet to see a Regent Honeyeater in the ACT, but this gives me a little bit of hope.

Hopefully we will see the day when they are common visitors to all our bird baths.

I wonder what the CNM record for the most likes is... this must be getting pretty close!

I noticed this bird species was in some national news today regarding a known breeding location for them that is under threat of possible development: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-29/push-to-protect-critically-endangered-regent-honeyeaters/10934296
