Looking around to see if I am still there,
Are you still there? he seems to say, and assessing the situation, decides I am not a threat.
what a lovely find - and thank you dear little bird for posing for the camera :)
I think this is the olive backed honeyeater - the male has the iridescent front bib, whereas the female is plain yellow. They are quite common in my garden and we enjoy seeing them have a bath in the birdbath every evening. They make a sweet little chattering noise. We have even had a couple of nests outside the windows. The dusky honeyeater is more common, and less shy- they don't have the brilliant front section.
