Alison, you can tell the White-plumed Honeyeaters by the white stripe on their necks, with a small touch of black at the top of the stripe. They are great fun to watch and usually fairly vocal, chasing off other birds near a food source. The bird also move around fairly quickly, typical of the smaller honeyeaters. We usually get a small flock that overwinter with us. Sandra

Sorry, I meant White-plumed honeyeater! I must have been thinking about the other photo I had that IS of a Golden Whistler.

Updated the abundance as I thought I was posting a different photo.
