These birds maked me crazy. So hard to ID. I think and hope this is the same bird on all images. But there was also Brown Honeyeater present. And hard to catch really as they moved around quickly in the Albizia silk tree among those beautiful flowers.  

If I´m wrong, please let me know.

  3. I had the same problem in Thailand. Seems like all the birds I saw were some form of black bird and very hard to tell apart. I am thinking this fella should snatch one of those feathery flowers and wear it ... bet you could tell him for the others then :) Beautiful flowers and cute birds ...

  4. Beautiful images! The bright pink is a perfect foil for the dark of the bird.

  5. Hello!:)Exquisite images! So, so beautiful!:) The lovely Albizia silk tree blooms are the perfect background for the Dusky Myzomela.

  6. A bird I have never seen. I think you have it right. The Brown Honeyeater seems to have a shorter beak. Coincidentally in my bird bible it is even feeding from the same tree.

  7. When i first visited Sydney a long time ago, the birds at once caught my attention as there are so plenty with wonderful colors. I love most the ordinary gallah and the rainbow lorikeets.

  9. Splendid shots - got some good views of this species recently - but no pictures worthy of that name!
