Looks like a great bird spot, Carole. I've never seen either of these species, but they are birds I'd love to see someday and you've got some excellent photos of them here. The Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater is very unique-looking!

I love the name "honeyeater." Very nice photos!

To answer your question on my blog about Double-created Cormorants: The double-crest is visible on adults only during breeding season. Thanks for asking the question as I'm sure others will be wondering too. I added this information to the post.

The White-plumed Honeyeater looks amazing. A lot smarter than our grey versions here in the UK. Great pictures.

What a wealth of bird-life in our out-back Carole. The white plumed honey-eater is gorgeous.

Hello Carole!:) Such gorgeous birds and beautifully photographed. I notice that the lovely yellow White-plumed Honey eater has brown eyes and the other blue eyes, which really compliments their colouring. Such beauties!:)

Those honeyeater photos are super! The top one really captured the reflection of light in the eye of the bird.
