Entomyzon Cyanotis - The Blue Faced Honeyeater... and why we like them

These two honeyeaters were perched on the tree waiting for the magpie to move away from their food source. The Blue eyed one above is the adult and the green eyed one is the juvenile (about 6 months old we think), getting a lesson in how to take on a James the Magpie.
This bird liked our banana plant when it was fruiting, it is also known as the Banana bird but eats all sorts of insects that would normally feast in our vegetable garden, therefore we really like sharing our home with this bird!
