Author's notes

In the same open space where I saw the Eastern Yellow Robin I noticed at least one New Holland Honeyeater. I saw it high in a tree. Before I could get closer, it flew from the branch to a different shrub. I thought it was feeding with another honeyeater and I was trying to get a photograph of either of them moving through the banksia shrub. Eventually, one of the birds flew back to the original branch. Before it once again flew to the banksia shrub, almost straight past my ear. Shortly afterwards, the honeyeater again came past my ear on its way to its vantage point. Unsure why it was flying between the two plants, but may have been chasing off another honeyeater?
